Databases collect, organise and index information from journals, books, book chapters, theses and dissertations, magazines, newspapers and other sources. UCT Libraries subscribe to many databases covering a wide range of subject areas.
To get the most out of our databases, make an appointment with your Subject Librarian who will give you detailed information and useful tips about designing your search strategy, refining your results, and tracking down the articles you discover.
The link to the databases can be found from the library home page, under 'Search & Find' (on the top menu bar) - choose Databases.
It is possible to access our databases off-campus using our proxy server: Click on the off campus login button on the library page.
