Databases can be:

  • Full text - containing the full text of the articles.
  • Bibliographic - these databases (sometimes called Abstract & Indexes / A&I) collect information about journal articles, often for a particular subject area. The most commondetails will be journal title, title of article, author, year of publication, volume and part number, and page numbers. There might also be an abstract which gives an overview of the article. Usually you will be able to use the Full Text Finder button to check whether the library has access to the full text article you want.
  • Other - we also have databases of material other than journal articles, such as
    • Financial data
    • Marketing data
    • News stories
    • Images
