For some assignments you will need to go beyond your reading list and do your own independent research. The Library subscribes to a number of subject databases helping you to find academic books and journal articles on your chosen topic.

Subject Specific databases:

  • PubMed – index of biomedical and life sciences literature including the Medline database. You can get help with PubMED tutorials or watch on our own excellent introductory video below:

 

  • Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection (Henry Stewart Talks) – seminar style audio-visual talks presented by world leading scientists to keep researchers up to date.
  • Business Source Ultimate – useful for sports management.
