Databases are specialist tools which you can use to find resources such as journal articles. The five listed below are the databases we recommend for all TESOL students, but the full list can also be accessed here.
For help with searching for resources, use the user guide and video links below, and the Search Skills page in this guide.
The easiest way to search for books held in the library is to use the library catalogue. You can search by author, title or keyword. You can also use the library catalogue to place reservations on books. The majority of books relating to TESOL, education, language and linguistics can be found on the top floor (Level 3) of Falmer Library
The library also has a number of TESOL ebooks which are available on and off campus. Most of these are included in the library catalogue and can also be found in OneSearch. For more information about finding and using ebooks please see our Help with using ebooks page.
The library has a number of journal titles which you can browse individually. We've highlighted some key titles from the collection, but there are many more. To search for a journal by title, please use the Online Journal Finder.
