Why should I use a database?

Databases will help you create focused searches for the most authoritative information on your topic. Chosen by your tutors, these are paid-for subscriptions which you should use to improve your marks for assignments. They contain high quality academic content that is not freely available on the internet.

It is vital to use a wide range of databases for your dissertation, so it's a good idea to gain confidence in using them before your final year. Your Academic Librarian will run sessions to help you build your searching skills. If you need more help you can contact them at any time during your studies.
