Journal databases are collections of journals, articles, conference papers, reports, and more, generally arranged by subject. The strength of journal databases is that they have many options for expanding or refining your search results, and they will link between themselves, so that an abstract found on one database can help you find the full text if it is held elsewhere.
CSU subscribes to many Databases on your behalf. These databases have been categorised by subject area to help you find what you're looking for more effectively. There are also some journal databases that Primo Search cannot search.
Why Should You Use Journal Databases?
Are the best source of academic or scholarly information for your assessments
