A library database is an online searchable catalogue or index for finding books, journal articles, newspaper articles, eBooks, theses, online videos and other published information.

Some, such as Library Search on the Library home page, cover a broad range of subjects and discipline areas.

Others contain information that is specific to one discipline area, for example health, engineering, education or law.

There are also databases containing specialist information resources such as maps, images, music, company information, statistics, standards and legal resources.

Information about databases held by the Library is available under the More Search Options link on the Library homepage.
