Databases By Subject

About Databases

Use Databases to discover search tools relevant to a specific research area. UW-Madison Libraries subscribe to more than 1,500 search tools that align with research in different Subject areas. For example PubMed for health science, Web of Science for STEM, or JSTOR for humanities and social sciences.

You can find databases here by the Subject areas they support, the Type of material they contain (e.g., Newspapers, Patents, or Statistics), or by targeting Introductory content. You can also find databases by Name or you can Search keywords that describe a database’s research area. For convenience, the Top 10 most frequently used databases are also highlighted.
