Overview

The Find Articles & FullText link on the library home page casts a wide net across multiple sources. Because it's so large, and not focused on a particular discipline (subject), it can sometimes be difficult to find exactly what you need.

The databases below either survey the core literature in a number of disciplines, or focus comprehensively on specific disciplines.

Research is iterative

Start with some of the key words and phrases of your research question.

Read through some of the articles you find, looking for additional ideas and key words that can be used to search again.

Note: Some database records will also provide subject heading or descriptor terms to help narrow or broaden your search. Keep an eye out for these! They can also be extremely useful.
