How to search Databases

Library databases provide access to journal articles, conference papers, newspapers, reports and other publications.

Most databases include full text of publications (usually in PDF, ePub or HTML format) . However some only index journals or provide summaries/abstracts of the articles.

Decide on the key concepts, subjects or words from your assignment and begin searching the databases.

The search and results screens of different databases may look different. Please contact us if you need help.
