What is a database?

Databases are collections of information used in academic study and research. Databases often focus on a specific subject area or profession, providing access to journal articles, statistics, images and sound, as well as indexes of further information. They are a reliable source of high quality information. Discover searches across most of Leeds Beckett's databases.

You'll need to become confident in using databases to support your assignment, dissertation and project work.

Further guidance on how to use databases is available from your Academic Librarians.
