Bibliographic Abstracting & Indexing Databases

Bibliographic databases are generally lists of references to books, journal articles, book chapters and conference proceedings, sometimes in a specific subject area. Some bibliographic resources focus on particular time periods or countries whilst others are more general. They may include an abstract or summary of the material, but in general they do not contain the full text of the publications referred to, although there may be a link to an online full text version if one is available and subscribed to by the University of York.
