Resources for Archaeology

Databases are one of the best types of resource to get familiar with.

We use the term ‘database’ to describe a searchable collection of online resources which contain items such as journal articles, books, and images. Using the databases recommended for your subject will help you find reliable information from trusted sources.


Finding Articles and Journals

Articles can be found either by entering a key phrase in the Library Search and using the left hand pane to select Content Type = Journal Articles OR by searching the professional journals listed below.

Most articles contained in journals we subscribe to are available electronically but we do have a small reference only collection of printed journals.
