Looking for open-access publications, journals, research articles, monographs and theses that you can read for free online? The British Library has now brought together the major open access repositories in one place to help you discover scholarly publications and resources that are freely available to all, wherever you are.

We now have access to 50 new databases from ProQuest for a whole year, until July 2023. We chose the databases on this list with care and hope you will find them useful. Once this year-long trial is up, we have to choose which ones to keep in perpetuity (up to the cost of our deposit).

Engineering Village is like a version of the EBSCO Discovery Service designed specifically for engineers. It is the broadest and most complete engineering literature database available in the world, comprising no less than ten chemistry, engineering, and earth science databases.

The Discovery Service searches across a huge range of subjects, which makes it a great place to search when you first start out but it is not necessarily the best tool to find in-depth information on a specialist topic. So where should you be searching for all the best research articles, market reports, video clips and other resources you might need for your assignments? Happily, the answer is simple: your subject pages.
