Multidisciplinary databases for suitable for Public Health topics



Discovery combines the information from the library catalogue, the digital repository and many databases into a single database so your search is faster, and more thorough. See the Discovery LibGuide for more information.

Discovery does not:

  •     completely cover all the databases the library subscribes to
  •     have the advanced features specific databases provide

If you need to conduct a comprehensive search, for example for a literature review, you should search individual databases as well as Discovery.
