The Library catalogue is a great place to start your search for information, but did you know we also have Library guides, specialised databases and other useful tools to help you with your research?
View our video and how-to guides to learn how to use the Library catalogue effectively.
Library guides help you find specialised and subject specific databases, as well as links to relevant resources such as theses, websites, newspapers, statistics, legislation, government reports and images.
Library databases can be used if you’re looking for specialised information or want to conduct a more focused search. You can find databases relevant to your topic area in the Library guides. Each database will look different—use our Prepare to search tips and the ‘help’ function available on each database for assistance with searching.
The Library has tools to connect you to content the Library subscribes to. These tools are helpful when looking for resources online or if you want to browse journals on your phone or tablet.
Give these tools a try:
- LibKey Nomad—a browser extension that provides direct links to full text of articles
- Google Scholar—a search engine used to access full text articles; watch our video on using Google Scholar and follow the instructions on how to set up [email protected] links
- Browzine—an app to browse journals, read and download articles, and get alerts when new content is published.
