Finding Popular and Scholarly Articles

A number of databases (collections of articles) at the library will let you search thousands of news and magazine articles at once. The ones listed below are a couple of the most popular.

Finding Scholarly Articles

Here are the top databases in this subject area:

Finding Full-Text Articles not in the Database

You want the full text of articles, right? There are several ways to find them and it depends on what you are looking for.

If you have citations for specific articles: check the Library Catalog to see if we subscribe to the journals that contain the articles. Do a Journal Title search (or a Journal Title Abbreviation search if you're not sure of the full title). The Catalog will show whether or not we have access to the electronic version and/or the print version; if we have neither, you can still request the articles via Interlibrary Loan.
