At the library, we have a large range of electronic databases. They can all be accessed by university members when online at the university, or from home by logging to databases using your university user name and password. To find a database, go to the library e-database search page, type the name of a database you are looking for into the “Database Name” search box, and press submit.
This first list is some of the e-databases listed by type (e.g. bibiliographic databases, dictionaries, historical source materials, maps, newspapers, etc).
This second list is a separate list of most of the e-journal databases (excluding a few with only 1 or 2 journals in), with around 124 databases on the list. Each e-journal database is a colletion of journals from a different publisher (e.g. Wiley-Blackwell, Oxford, American Chemical Society); and some databases may contain only 1 or a few journals, whereas others contain 2000 journals. In most cases, the library only buys some of the journals in the database, so you will only be able to access articles in journals we buy, others will not open or will ask you for passwords. A few databases cover most subjects, and are therefore nearly always worth searching when you are hunting for articles for your research, and other contain journals for particular subjects (health, law, science, etc); so the list divides e-journal databases by subject.
