For a comprehensive search of the research literature use one or more of the Key Databases (below).
The databases don't contain the online full text of articles and papers, so you will need to use the QConnect service to link to the full-text in the library's subscriptions.
Please note: The key databases cover many more items than are available from the Library. If you find a paper which you cannot access online because the library doesn't subscribe to it, you may be able to request a copy via the Inter-Library Loans service.
