The Axinn Library provides over 200 databases for your research needs. Most of these databases contain scholarly articles. Since Irish Studies is essentially an interdisciplinary area, covering history, literature and culture, many of our databases can be used for your research needs. We have prepared a list of databases that are suggested for your research, but don't limit yourself to only these databases.
This tool will help you determine if the Axinn Library has access to a specific journal, and whether we own it in print or online.
