What are databases?

A database is an organised collection of information. Academic databases are ideal when you need to conduct a more focused search than the library website or an online search engine provides. They contain abstracts, journal articles and conference papers on specific subjects.  They are ideal for searching specialist resources in your subject area. You can use the library website for searching across multiple databases but for more targeted searching please see the list below of databases that can be useful for Technical Theatre.
