Databases 
SBA Resources and Digital Library (BDA)

Databases is the application that queries the University's bibliographic and full-text databases and free electronic resources selected by the libraries.
The search box allows you to search by title words or keywords, or choose a specific subject.
The Dettagli button on the Details column opens a window with detailed information on the resource.

Ca' Foscari subscribes to around 100 multidisciplinary or discipline-specific databases. There are various types of databases:

  • bibliographic database: it contains and makes searchable descriptions of books, periodicals, theses... Useful for finding up-to-date bibliographies on a subject or author
  • full text database: it contains and makes searchable bibliographic descriptions and allows direct access to the full text of publications
  • factual database: it collects and makes searchable primary data such as chemical formulas, laws, company balance sheets, economic and financial statistical data (e.g. AIDA, Bloomberg)
  • citation database: it provides information on the quality, quantity and impact of scientific publications based on the use of bibliometric indices such as the Impact Factor (e.g. Scopus, WOS).
