For everyone in the University
Bibliographical databases allow you to search for papers on your research topic across a range of journals and other resources. These tasks will guide you through databases and citation indexes specific to your subject area. Choose the task that best suits you. Note that some databases may be useful for more than one subject area – for example English could benefit from both Humanities and Modern Languages databases.
You can try these tasks on your own, although they were designed to be done in a classroom with a teacher to support you. For these tasks, you will need web browser software such as Mozilla Firefox or Edge installed on your computer. Talk to your IT support person about this.
