Help Finding Articles

We subscribe to many databases that can help you identify journal, newspaper and magazine articles.  You can find a list of all our databases and descriptions of each on our Databases A-Z page.  For many of our databases we have tutorials to help you navigate and more tutorials will be coming.  You can also use our databases off-campus; read our Off-Campus Access page for more information.

To help you find which databases to use for your subject area, try using our Guides by Subject page.  Just select a subject area and a list of databases for that area will be provided.

Many of our databases provide full-text access to articles, but if there is no full text, look for the button. Click the Find It button to see if the article is available in any other database. Read our Find It FAQs page for more information.  If you would like to save the URL of a full-text article, find out how on our Linking to Articles page.

Lastly, if you have a citation of a journal article and want to know if we have access to that journal, use our Journal Finder.  Type in the name of the journal and Journal Finder will let you know if we have access to the journal electronically or in print.
