CrossSearch is not a replacement for specialised print and electronic finding tools which offer more sophisticated searching options and a targeted subject scope. Use the Library's Databases home page to identify and access individual databases.
Not all research databases are included in CrossSearch. Some of the current participating databases and publishers include: ScienceDirect, Sage journals, Wiley-Blackwell journals, JSTOR, ProQuest Central, Nature, Informit, Literature Online.
