Subject Guides

Subject Guides are online resources designed to help you explore your subject area and start your research.

  • There is a subject guide for each department at the University of Essex, and these guides make it easy to find subject specific resources like databases and journals for your area of study.
  • Subject guides are created by the Academic Liaison Librarian for that department, and they have a lot of knowledge about your subject and the tools you need to do well in your studies.
  • If you’re unsure where to start with finding resources for your assignment or research, your subject guide is a great place to begin your search!

You can also explore our A-Z list - a full list of databases the library subscribes to, including trial access, where you can find the best library databases for your research. You can filter the A-Z list by subject to only see databases relevant to your degree.
