eSkills 2.0 Searching tutorials (using Search, Finding Journal Articles etc.)
Journals & Databases
UNE has access to a wide range of electronic Journals and Databases. Journals are published on a regular basis and they are where you will find peer-reviewed articles that are required for scholarly research. UNE subscribes to many databases. These databases allow access to thousands of journals and other resources. Some databases are extensive and cover many different subject areas, while others are more subject specific.
Two ways to find and access databases:
1. Subject Guides
Subject Guides are created for various subject areas. They provide guidance and resources that are specific to the discipline and include direct links to the best databases for your unit or topic.
2. A-Z List of Databases
If you already know which database you want to use you can select from the A-Z list.
Past exam papers are accessible online through the library homepage (via eReserve). You can search for past exams in the same as way as eReserve, using the Unit Code (e.g. HIST111).
Please be aware that not all subjects and years have been provided to the library. If the exam papers you would like are not available online, please contact your unit coordinator.
