Searching Databases

A database is a searchable collection of records many of which will link you to the full text of a journal article, report etc. Some are designed with a particular community of users in mind e.g. health professionals, scientists etc. Databases are located in several areas within the University of Kent - Resources webpages. You will need your University of Kent username and password to access these databases either from the Drill Hall Library or from home.
