Access to the full text of content found through DISCOVER depends on the University owning (via subscription or purchase) that title, or a resource containing that title.

A basic DISCOVER search is limited to items held at Liverpool. Expand searches to find content more widely by deselecting 'Library Collections' that appears under ‘Limiters’ on the left hand side of the screen when viewing results.

Our subject library guides list the range of databases that we have for each subject.
