The databases are listed alphabetically on the page, and there is a brief description under each so you know what types of sources can be found there.
You can use the filters near the top to view databases that:
- are recommended for particular subjects, i.e., art, psychology, science, etc.
- contain particular types of material, i.e., images, reference articles, streaming videos, etc.
- are provided by particular vendors, i.e., EbscoHost, Gale, Proquest, etc.
You'll also find on this page:
4. a link to search by periodical title in order to determine whether the library has online access to specific newspapers, magazines & journals; and
5. a list of databases for which we currently have trials, and a link to provide feedback on those resources (we consider this when we look at adding new databases).
