Subterranean Homesick Databases

Some of these database sub-collections (or other database ephemera) could be useful!

What is this guide?

These titles have no home! They are hidden from view. They are subterranean homesick databases and so do not appear on our databases list. However these are direct links to subjects/disciplines or other categories within the larger database platforms. They are added to this guide as "link assets." To use them simply map these links to your guides by:

Add / Reorder button --> Link --> Reuse Existing Link --> Search for link (by title)

If you think one or more of these sub-database should be on the database list proper, feel free to suggest it! - Jeremy
