From the Library's home page, you have several options to access the databases:

  1. If you are not sure what database to use, try the Subject and Study Guides which are linked from the library homepage. Choose the subject heading relevant to your assignment or course of study. Click on the "Articles" or "Databases" tab in the subject guide to find links to the relevant databases for that topic.
  2. If you know which database you wish to search use the Databases A-Z list. This list is also linked from the library homepage.
  3. It's possible to search multiple databases simultaneously. To do this:
    • log in and then use the Articles-Express tab on the LibrarySearch box. This will search pre-selected groups of databases. You can also save your favourite searches so that you can easily run them again, and save your favourite journal articles.
