Find Databases

To help you with your research the Library subscribes to circa 800 index, abstract, bibliographic, biographic and full text databases, covering a range of subjects. Also included in these lists are freely some available websites, selected by Library staff. (Note we also subscribe to thousands of journals.)

NB: A small number of Library subscribed resources are available to registered Readers via our Remote Eresources service.
However, owing to licensing reasons, the majority of our Library subscribed databases are only available to registered Readers using British Library workstations within the Library's Reading Rooms, Business & IP Centre and Newsroom.

To enable you to use the databases, and other electronic resources, effectively the Library offers a range of workshops.
