Online Databases

Both Falmouth and Exeter subscribe to a wide range of online databases. These are large directories of content such as articles, and scientific papers. These directories can be used to  locate useful journal articles for your essays simply by typing in a name or some keywords that describe your topic. In many cases these articles will be available to view online, if not it may be possible to source a copy either on our shelves or from another library.

All databases will either provide links to the whole article for you to read and print it out, or will provide enough detail for you to be able to find it in the library or elsewhere.


All online databases available to Falmouth University students are covered in a resource list on this website, though extended advice and information about their suitability may be available from your subject librarian.


Electronic resources available to University of Exeter students are listed under the University of Exeter Electronic Library
