Your subject-specific guide to using library resources.
Bibliographic databases give you an overview of the literature in a subject area. They provide an index to journal articles and conference papers from a wide range of publishers. Many of these databases provide an abstract of a paper, but NOT ALWAYS the full text. Key databases for Agriculture include:
eJournal collections, whilst not as comprehensive as databases, will normally give you subject focused results and often include the full text. Key Agriculture eJournal collections include:
Try Google Scholar for finding scholarly literature on the internet. Google Scholar is particularly good at finding Open Access (freely accessible) scholarly information but a great deal of important literature is still only available through the databases and electronic journals to which the Library subscribes. You should, therefore, use Google Scholar in addition to (and not instead of) our databases and electronic journals.
We run trials of new subscription products relating to your subject area by mutual agreement with academic staff – see our subject support blog for the latest.
