Bibliographical tools: Find and use databases specific to your subject area

  • hands-on task | Publicly viewable

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.

For these tasks, you will need web browser software such as Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer installed on your computer. Talk to your IT support person about this.
