Tutorial: Finding Databases

Finding databases in your subject area using the Databases link

Need to do a more comprehensive or in-depth search? Not sure where to start? Browse or search for our top subject databases by name or keyword using the Databases* link under the main search box (or try the catalog to find all databases)! 

Also try our Library Guides to find resources for your specific subject or course!

*Databases are collections of articles (or other materials), either general or subject-specific, which often include material not available on the open Web and give you additional tools for more comprehensive or precise searching.

NOTE: The Articles & Full Text link will search within most of the article databases (and ebooks) Cornell has access to; however, the Databases link only finds the titles of specific databases, not their contents.

NOTE: From the main search box at library.cornell.edu, you can also search for database titles.
