Introduction to e-Resources

Welcome to a complete list of:

- 414 bibliographic databases,
- 469 327 e-books (26 723 licensed, the rest free), and
- 73 481 electronic journals

covering ALL subject areas, to which the Academic Information Service (Library) subscribes, and to which we offer online access for our clients. 

Of the 321 databases, 231 are available on the Internet, which gives you access from your office, home, as well as from anywhere in the world, provided that you are a registered student or lecturer of the library and University of Pretoria.  The balance of 89 databases are available on-campus on the CD Databases & Application menu which should be available on the desktop of any university computer.  If not loaded please contact your Information Specialist or the Library Help Desk Tel.: +27 12 420 2802.

These databases are very important for academic and research work as they index the most important journals, conference proceedings (and in some cases books), on a specific subject field, and when properly used, enable you to find and focus on all the most  relevant references.  It is very important to note that no search engine will cover all the most important academic and scientific references you need for your research work.    

If you need to know more about the databases which you can use in your subject area please contact your Information Specialist in the library. 

To access these databases, you will be prompted for a Username (your surname), and your Student/Personnel number.  If you experience problems accessing the databases, please do not hesitate to contact your Information Specialist or the Library Help Desk Tel.: +27 12 420 2802.
