A database is a collection of information on a website organized so you can conduct a search (by keyword, title, author, etc). The UML Library provides access to many databases in all subject areas. They include journal articles, books, conference papers, maps, government reports, etc.
Article Quick Searchon the UML Library Home Page searches many of the library databases simultaneously, but not all of them. If you need to research a narrow topic, try the databases below.
Databases will include some titles available in full text and some as titles only. If the article or book you need doesn't is not available in full text, in most cases you will be able to use Interlibrary Loan to access the item.
Dimensions is a linked research data platform, similar to PubMed, Scopus, or Web of Science. Dimensions is designed to provide knowledge about what is going on in your research area, and how this is changing over time.

Annual Reviews synthesizes the vast amount of primary research literature. Editorial committees comprised of distinguished scholars in the discipline critically review, synthesize, and filter the vast amount of primary research in specific disciplines. Each AR article is written by authors who are recognized experts in the field. Each article is its own search engine, providing a gateway to the essential primary research literature referenced within each topic. These AR publications are among the highest cited publications by impact factor according to the Institute for Scientific Information® (ISI).
