The library cannot complete these searches for you. Conducting database searches independent of students is not within our remit as it would not be academically admissible, and we would not be able to provide you with a definitive answer.   

We are always happy to introduce you to the databases and e-resources available through BCU, and assist you in forming your search strategy.  

You can either visit Curzon or Seacole library and see the librarian on duty (11-5 Mon-Fri) for a drop-in session, or you can book a 1hr tutorial session with a subject librarian (  Additionally our 24 hour chat service ( can offer hints and tips on searching 

You can also find the recommended databases for your subject on our subject guides.  These are available at: .  All of these pages are openly accessible to all students and you may find that there are several guides which are relevant you and your course.  Each of these has a 'finding resources' section with a list of 'databases'.   

You can also run a search on our Summon database (!/).  If you use the 'advanced' search option you can limit your searches by keyword and date range.
