Finding information in journals and magazines

Middlesex University subscribes to many databases. These contain full text journal articles, conference proceedings, illustrations and photographs.

On campus you can normally login directly to these resources. Off campus always login to myUniHub, go to My University and follow the links in  My Library . This ensures you are automatically logged in to the resources paid for by Middlesex University.

  • Library Search:  Search all our resources at the same time. 
  • Web of Science:  See how papers have been cited by others. Track those citations to other cited works.

For help using our databases, please contact your Subject Liaison Librarian.
