Novanet searches most but not all library databases. In addition, Novanet does not search the full text of articles, and certain database search features and functionality are not available in Novanet.
For these reasons, searching individual databases in addition or instead of Novanet may be the best option in some cases. For more information, please see Which Search Tool Should I Use?
All library databases are listed in the A-Z List of Databases. Browse the list by subject to find the databases most suitable to your topic.
All databases are accessible on campus to all library patrons. No user name or password is required.
All licensed databases are accessible off-campus to authorized Mount Allison patrons (students, faculty and staff). A Mount Allison user name and password is required. Freely available (open access) databases are available to all patrons on or off campus.
While a majority of library databases allow you to search for and access articles, many provide access to other types of material, including primary sources, audio and video streaming, and professional standards. Use the drop-down "database type" menu to browse the various types of library databases.
