Database Guides and Tutorials

A guide listing samples of technical databases

Using this guide

Qatar University Library subscribes to general, multidisciplinary and subject specific databases. This Research Guide will provide you with tips, tutorials, and guides to help you use them effectively.

Access the left navigation for visual tutorials, guides, and instructions on how to search a specific e-resource and its key features.

How to access E-resources off-campus:

Access to many of the resources on the QU library website is restricted to currently registered students, faculty and staff. When accessing a library resource from outside the university, students, staff and faculty are prompted to enter their QU username and password to gain access.

Once you log into any database, you are logged into all of the other databases until you close your browser.
