What are they?
All databases will either provide links to the whole article for you to read and print it out, or will provide enough detail for you to be able to find it in the library or elsewhere.
Why use them?
Finding a relevant database
All Library databases available to Falmouth University students are covered in a e-resource list on the Library website. You may prefer to use the Specialist Databases section of your Subject Guides to discover the databases that your Academic Liaison Librarian recommends.
You can also use Library Search, which enables you to search multiple databases from a single search box. Library Search can be a good place to start your search. Be aware though that not every database is searchable via Library Search. The databses that are not searchable include Box of Broadcasts, some of our trends databases and business databases.
Electronic resources available to University of Exeter students are in a Databases A-Z list, and can be filtered further by Subject. You can also use your Subject LibGuide, which pulls together not only the recommended databases for your subject but also provides useful library links and study skills advice. The Geography LibGuide is a typical example.
