On top of the many physical resources you have access to at DIS to enhance your studies, the Library also provide access to extensive online academic databases, e-books, encyclopedias and dictionaries.
Online Research Tools Available to You
JSTOR gives full text access to a great number of academic journals, books and primary sources.
When searching, it is useful to set the access type to “Content I can access.” That way you will only get results where you can read the full text.
EBSCO Academic Search Elite
A database that provides full text articles from more than 2,000 journals.
When searching, it is useful to limit your results to “Full text.” That way you will only get results where you can read the full text.
Here you will find our collection of e-books. Some are directly used in courses taught at DIS, others are Open Access or provided for research or leisure reading.
EBSCO Search Elite also gives access to several smaller databases focused on specific subjects. Choose which database section you want to search in or switch through them as needed, by clicking the “choose databases” link on top of the search field.
