Finding a database by name

MultiSearch provides an access point to the databases that the Library subscribes to. You can search for a database by choosing ‘Database by title’ from the top navigation bar, and entering the database name in the search box.  

Finding a database by subject

You can use the ‘Database by title’ option in the top navigation bar to also browse for databases by subject category.  When you select a category in the left-hand column, the databases in that category will display in the results. 

Another way to find to relevant databases is to browse the Library Subject & Research Guides for your subject area. These guides contain suggestions of the best databases to search based on subject area.


What is a Database?

A database is a curated collection of information resources which can be searched on a computer.

Macquarie University Library subscribes to a range of subject-related and multidisciplinary research databases from Australia and around the world.

The content in these databases can include journal articles, reports, conference papers, books, chapters of books, published and unpublished papers.
