Specialist databases

Databases are large, searchable collections of academic materials (journal articles, ebooks, newspapers, videos, etc). Some journal databases provide access to full-text articles, whilst others provide abstract or citation information about journal articles that we may or may not have full-text access to. The content of most databases are linked to 'Search Everything' on UR Library Search, or for more precise and relevant search you can choose to search the individual databases.
