Useful Tips

Databases identify and locate articles published in magazines, journals and newspapers. Many databases also index essays, book chapters and monographs.

  • Tip 1: Some of the databases provide full-text coverage of journals.
  • Tip 2: If the database does not provide full-text, use Get it! Cornell or search the library catalog for the journal title (or book title). This will provide you with Cornell's holdings of the journal (in both print and electronic form).
  • Tip 3: For more precise searching use the advance search feature of the chosen database.
