Selecting Resources

Tips for selecting resources:

  • Background information: a book or eBook by searching the library catalogue
  • Specific, foreground information: an article database is your best bet

What is a Database?

Any online resource that uses a search engine. Examples of databases are:

  • Library catalogue which contains all of the resources (books, eBooks, journals etc.) subscribed to by the Library.
  • Article databases that contain individual articles within a specific discipline. When choosing an article database, be mindful of the scope (type of information and date range) of the resource
  • Collection of eBooks or eJournals online
  • Citation indexes which allow you to track who cited specific articles or books
