Databases Explained

Databases are collections of resources such as journal articles and conference papers, and also sometimes book chapters and reports. If you are doing a literature search or systematic review they are a key resource to use.


Spotlight on EBSCOhost

Many of the Library’s subject-specific databases are on the EBSCOhost platform.  This is really handy because if you need to search the literature across multiple disciplines, you can do it all in the one search: Click on the Choose Databases hyperlink above the search box and you’ll see the other subject-specific databases that may be of relevance to your research:

For instance, Hospitality & Tourism Complete indexes the literature related to hospitality.  If you are researching a topic that overlaps with other disciplines such as psychology or environmental sustainability, you may find it useful to search the literature of these disciplines as well.  You can search any or all of these databases individually or concurrently by checking the radio buttons.  The little speech bubbles will give you a description of the content indexed.

Searching the Magazine Literature

There are also some general reference databases on this platform that might be useful.  The main ones for general magazines like Time, The Economist, and BusinessWeek are:
