These are a few databases to get you started searching for information.  These have both scholarly (academic or peer-reviewed) and news sources.  For more suggestions, see our complete list of ADES-related databases

If you're not on campus, you'll be asked to log in before connecting to the database.

Some databases link to full articles, but you might need to open the Full Text Journals List and search for the journal title.

If an article is not in our library or online, order it through Inter-Library Loans. It's free, but usually takes a week or two.

If you're writing a paper or giving a formal presentation, don't forget to cite your sources!  The American Psychological Association (APA) is one of the most frequently-requested formats. 

Applied Disaster and Emergency Studies draws on research from a number of disciplines, so you may need to search more than one database to meet your information needs.

Interlibrary loans (ILL) provides access to journal articles, books and other items unavailable through the library. The service is available to all students, staff and faculty, is usually free and can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the library supplying us.

ILLs can be submitted to us via various Databases, as well as via our Online Forms. In either case, you will need to use your Brandon University ILL account to do so.
