Writing 1340 (Summer 2017): Searching databases

Library Research Guide for Wendy Jones' class


Search databases to find articles, essays, book chapters and monographs

Enter single terms or phrases and review results. If you're getting too many results, you can add terms to narrow your search.

If the full-text isn't included, use

to search  the library's online and print collections.

A note about Get it! Cornell: If we don't have an electronic version of a journal article, book chapter, or essay, search the library catalog for the book or journal title (not the article, essay, or chapter title) or Ask a Librarian! If we don't have it, click the Submit a Request link to request a article or chapter scan or book delivery from another library in the country.


Selected databases covering Agriculture, Philosophy, Public Policy and Politics
