To begin with:

There are different ways to access the content the online library provides. You can search across most areas of the library using Library Search. Searching Library Search will give you results in covering different subjects and resource types.

There are four main types of resources.

  1. ebooks - ebooks are like traditional books but available online
  2. ejournals - ejournals are similar to a magazine but available on the internet; the content is rigorously checked for quality
  3. articles - each issue of a journal contains a number of articles written by expert academics
  4. databases - a database in the library context means a collection of ejournals or ebooks which can all be searched at the same time

In order to use databases to find information for an assignment you need to understand how ebooks, ejournals and articles are organised so look at those links first.
