New Library Hub database trials – We want your feedback

Several new databases are currently being trialled. Depending on price and feedback from students and staff of the University, these online resources may be added to the Library Hub in 2019. Please email your feedback to library@divinity.edu.au

A full list of the 32 databases available via the University’s Library Hub can be found here.  This list can be filtered by Database Type (e.g. Abstracts, eBooks, Journals, Reference, Specialist) or by Vendor/Provider (e.g. Ebsco, Oxford).
