What are databases?

Databases contain references to journal articles, book chapters, books, standards etc., depending on the type of database used. They can cover one subject area or a wide range of fields. Full text will be partly available. Content is mostly limited to academic, often peer-reviewed sources. 

Selecting and accessing databases

Academic databases are listed in our Datenbank-Infosystem (Database Information System, DBIS, German language only). You can find major databases for your field of study by selecting your field from the "Fachübersicht" and then choosing one database from the "Top-Datenbanken" (top databases).
