E-Library Databases

UBSS has invested substantially in electronic databases used by leading Australian universities:

  • Emerald 
  • ProQuest
  • Ebsco Host;
  • Oxford Reference Online
  • Informit; and
  • Gale

Students have 24/7 access to these e-library databases through their MyGCA  account.

These e-databases provide a portal for access to thousands of high quality, peer reviewed e-journals and e-books that are easily accessible for your assignment and research needs. The vast majority of Australian universities subscribe to these databases and their use is mandatory by students.
