Research Databases at the University of Waterloo

A search in Omni, the library catalogue, includes journal articles, newspaper articles, reviews, and conference proceedings available through many, though not all of the library's electronic subscription databases. Omni is a good place to begin a search. However, when you get deeper into your topic you will want to search databases such as the ones listed here.

For a nearly-comprehensive list of the databases available through the University of Waterloo, listed by subject area, see the Research Databases page. Note that Peace and Conflict Studies is considered interdisciplinary, so does not have a separate listing on this page.
