Databases

See below for an alphabetical list of the electronic databases, e-book collections, and e-journal collections to which the library subscribes. Access to these e-resources is restricted to the students and staff of Brunel University London for licensing and technical reasons. Some licence agreements may exclude access to databases and their contents from certain countries. It is your responsibility to comply with the terms and conditions of the relevant licence agreements - for more information see the copyright web page on databases - contact copyright@brunel.ac.uk if you have any questions.

For more information on how to access the databases on-campus and off-campus see the e-Library web page. A small number of e-resources require a unique username and password instead. These are given on the password page on our intranet. Please do not share credentials with anyone.
