Databases are online searchable resources which the library subscribes to. They provide access to a range of information including journal articles, newspapers and trade papers. Some databases will link to the full text of articles, others will only provide the reference.
Please contact your Information Skills Librarian for advice about searching key databases.
The simplest and quickest way to find good quality academic reading relevant to your lectures and assignments is to search for the online reading list using your module code. This will link you directly to eBooks and articles in eJournals as well as trustworthy websites. These lists can also be accessed via SurreyLearn.
