We will post updates and help info on this blog while we are off, so check out

What is available online?

Library Databases

The library databases are huge searchable websites with full text (the full thing) resources such as journal articles, newspaper articles, ebooks, conference papers, reports, video. See our A-Z list of subscribed databases . 

Referencing  and Literature Search Help

Library staff have done a lot of one to one and group tutorials on campus and online with individuals, classes and staff since September and that does not have to change. We are available online if you get stuck, just email the helpdesk. We can upload videos with help if needed. Meanwhile we have a fantastic resource in Cite Them Right – It’s a website/online tutorial on referencing that is available to you online all the time. 

Online Theses

An institutional repository is an online collection of the academic work of an institute. This can include theses or journal articles or conference papers. IT Sligo’s collection can be found in Research@THEA

we have also collated a list of other Institutional repositories.

Free online resources

If you are using Google Scholar you can link to the Yeats library to get full text. If you are using Pubmed and can’t get full text copy the title into an EOLAS search to see if you have access to full text there.

The publication finder website/tool allows you to browse and search for all our online journals. Just search for the title for example:

  • MIT Sloan

  • British Journal of Nutrition

  • Harvard Business Review

  • Health Promotion Practice
  • Bioprocess International


This is a big search tool that allows you to search most of the library databases in one go. It is by default limited to full text. All of the ebooks are in here. We prefer it if you use the Advanced search because you have more control, and it’s actually easier to use.

Online Help Resources

We have a huge range of libguides and videos on anything from academic writing to referencing in our libguides website. Also, check out our referencing web page (which we will be updating soon)
