What are databases?
A database allows you to search for material in journals, magazines, ebooks and other online resources. Results can include just the abstract (summary) of the material; or the complete article, book, video, etc.
The resources in the Wintec databases are reliable because they have been curated for academic users (students, tutors and professionals).
Wintec has over 80 databases, each containing thousands of resources. Our databases cover all our areas of study; some are general and some are subject specific.
To search most of our databases all at once use OneSearch.
