Finding journal articles
Databases help you find journal articles and other relevant material for your essays or research. Some services find data on specific disciplines or subject areas, others index only certain types of publications.
bibliographic databases usually give you the reference only, but many work with the 360 Link service to provide links to the full text where this is available at Kent.
Below is a selection of the most useful databases for Classical Studies.

FAQs: how do I use...
Indexing databases list what is available globally, and not all items may be available at Kent. If an item you want to see does not have a link to the full text, search for the item via the Library catalogue (choose 'Journal search') or the journals database.
If the item is not available at Kent, the document delivery service may be able to get it for you from another library.
360 Link works only with journals. It provides a button which searches the Library's e-journals subscriptions and offers a link (or links) to the relevant journal if you have online access to it. If direct links to articles or issues are available, these are offered on the 360 Link options page.
