Due to changes to the Cardiff University website, this page will be removed by March 2016. 

We would like your feedback and comments on why you use this page and how you use it. Please email with the subject 'Databases A-Z feedback' to ensure it reaches the University Library Service Webpages Group. It should be noted that this page is not an extensive A-Z list of all our subscribed databases.

You can find databases in the intranet (University staff and students only - log-in required) by searching for the database name or going to the appropriate subject in the Information resources for your subject pages. You can also search for databases by name in LibrarySearch
