Discover is your academic search engine, which searches over 90% of resources available from Leeds Beckett Library. These resources include books from the Library Catalogue and most electronic journals and databases. Discover is a great place to start your research.
Databases are tools, often focused on a specific subject area or profession, which allow you to search for high quality information. You can use databases to find research articles as well as other types of information like Standards, Patents, Maps etc.
Journals are the main way research is communicated amongst a subject area. They are published regularly e.g. weekly, monthly or quarterly and are good for up to date information as well as research. Journals contain more specialised information about subjects than books, so you will need to use them as your academic interests develop.
