General & Multidisciplinary Databases

A variety of multidisciplinary and academic databases are available from the University Library System (ULS),  University of Pittsburgh. ULS databases will work only on the Pitt network and through Pitt remote access.

These databases will be useful when completing a comprehensive literature search on a specific health or biomedical topic or for locating general reference information.
