Using Databases to Find Articles

Library databases provide an efficient way to locate journal articles on enology and viticulture related topics. Not all databases have the same interface, but almost all use some kind of search box and have tools that help limit your search.

Many of the articles you find using a database will be available to you in full-text (often as a PDF). Sometimes you will need to click on the
Get it! Cornell icon to locate the actual article. Reference librarians can assist you with questions about obtaining documents.
