Architecture: Specialist Databases

Databases & Specialist eResources

An abstract is a concise summary of the contents of an article. It is written using keywords (search terms) so that other researchers can easily find it through database searching. Please note that we may not have a subscription to the full text of the article. If you are final year student or postgraduate, you can apply for an inter-library loan.

These databases are available without a subscription and you can continue to use them after you graduate.
