Databases and Online Resources

Use the databases and online resources when you need to research a topic. Click on the links below for more information about each resource. If you are unsure which resources to use, click on Library resources by subject in the left hand menu to see the best resources for your subject area.

There are also separate collated listings of Newspaper databases and Statistical databases - links in the left hand menu.

Where the resource does not include the full text of articles you will usually see a link through to our ejournals listing. Please note: some databases may index thousands of journals and Birkbeck Library will not subscribe to them all. You will need to use other libraries or the Interlibrary loan service to obtain copies of articles we don't subscribe to.

The pages below have links to database-specific help. For general help with searching databases see the Library & Information Skills Moodle module
