There’s something for everyone!
If you’re looking to take your research up a notch then you need to take a look at the specialist databases we offer.
What are they?
These are usually collections of resources linked to a particular subject and they can give you access to a treasure trove of additional material for your assignment.
Why do I need them?
They contain specialist resources which often aren’t freely available. We pay a subscription for many of them so you can have access both on and off campus. This also means that usually you need to search them in addition to a Discovery search.
Here are a just few suggestions to get you started:
Stash. is a best bet if you’re looking for animation, VFX and motion design.
From our range of education and childhood resources you can search almost 350,000 results on Child Development & Adolescent Studies.
Our Business databases can help you as part of your studies and if you have a brilliant startup idea – for example, marketing and product development are covered in Mintel.
Remember … they are worth the effort if you want to do a comprehensive search. And … some of them are used by employers, so you could add this experience to your CV!
How do I find them?
You can browse the full list of over 200 on our A to Z of Databases.
