Databases are searchable electronic tools which help you to identify journal articles, books and chapters in books, conference papers and other sources useful for your studies. A considerable number of the journals indexed are available in the Learning Resource Centres in print or in electronic full-text from the library catalogue. Some (bibliographic) databases just include abstracts which summarise what an article is about, and then give you a WebBridge link back to the catalogue to check if we have the journal in-house.
Brief details of the databases relevant to health courses are given below. The heading for each group leads to a page with fuller descriptions.
