Select Databases

Beginning Your Research with InfoKat Discovery

InfoKat Discovery allows you to quickly search multiple library resources simultaneously.

InfoKat Discovery searches the majority of UK resources, including books, journal articles, dissertations, government documents, archives and special collections, images, maps, videos, music and open access content.

InfoKat Discovery does NOT include all of the journal articles available through our databases.

If you are doing very specialized searching or wish to limit your search to a particular database, you can select the database of your choice using the UK Libraries' Databases search.

Finding Biographical Information

You can also find biographical information in the obituaries for authors that have passed away. Look for these in the newspaper databases below. While searching, always include the author's name in quotation marks. For example, "Lauren Farmer."
