Journal articles are written by experts in the field and are an excellent source for current and original research; often on quite specific aspects of a topic. Databases provide you with access to an increasing amount of articles which will help you find comprehensive information on your chosen topic.

Not all of our databases are full-text. If you find an article that only has an abstract we may be able to interloan it for you. Fill out an online interloan form.

Most of our databases have a help menu. If you need help with the databases contact your subject librarian.

  • Who is making the content available, are they a reliable source?
  • Is the content they are presenting accurate?
  • Is it biased towards political or commercial interests?

Our evaluating the credibility of websites guide will help you with this process. Get in touch with a librarian or one of our Learning Advisors if you are unsure.
