Online Resources

Search Databases

To complement our print collections, we subscribe to online resources, such as e-journal databases, image libraries and online film resources. These resources are great for essays or assignments, and can be accessed even when the library is closed through your OpenAthens Account.  

Databases include:
ARTbibliographies Modern (ABM)
Design and Applied Arts Index (DAAI)
Art and Architecture Source
Taylor & Francis Online
Berg Fashion Library
Material Connexion (Materials Database)
Artstor (Image Library)
