Below is a list of resources we have available within the Library.
Databases are indexes which enable you to search for articles within journals. Many also provide abstracts of the articles.
The Library buys books in electronic format whenever possible. All of them can be read on any computer which is connected to the Internet and many can also be downloaded for a period of time to laptops, tablets, and other devices for reading offline. You can find ebooks through Library Search and on the publishers' websites. For further information on ebooks see the LibGuide.

Some key reference works are also available online.
