A library database is a large, searchable, online collection of published scholarly materials.
The ANU Library subscribes to approximately 540 scholarly databases, containing many millions of searchable items, including scholarly journal articles, newspaper articles, images, streaming videos, music, and other academic publications.
Below is a list of databases containing Archaeology resources. You can see more databases on the Library's e-resources and databases page.
Please note, the databases listed are available to ANU students and staff on and off campus. Login and password are required for remote access.
If you find a journal article not available in full text through the Library's databases or print journals, you can request it through our ArticleReach Service.
