EBSCO Databases

EBSCO host logo - decorative image

Full text academic articles that are part of the EBSCO package are available through any of these three titles:

  • Academic Search Premier
  • Humanities International Complete
  • Business Source Premier

The content of this database is crossdisciplinary. Students from all the disciplines in the Humanities and Social Science spectrum will find relevant content in this database.


A very popular database with architects, but it does not have everything, please use the others too.

PLEASE NOTE:  JSTOR does not provide  citations in Harvard style, you will need to copy one of the other examples they provide and convert to Harvard

Taylor & Francis Online

We have access to the Social Sciences and Humanities Collection in Taylor and Francis Online. The resource provides full text coverage back to 1997 and up to the current year. This is particularly useful for users of Education Research Complete in EBSCO where embargoes are in place on the accessibility of the most recent articles published within the last 18 months.

It can be accessed on and off campus via the My Learning/Learning Support pages in the portal.
