There are a few ways to find articles on your topic. 

  • You may want to start by using the main search box on the Libraries' home page which will allow you to search our catalog, Search It, that includes many articles. When you find a journal article in Search It that you want, check to see if it says "Online Access" or "Full Text Available." Then click on the article title to open the record options, scroll down to Access Options and the click on the blue link to the database. See below for a screenshot of what this looks like.

  • You can also click on the Find Journal Articles link on our home page, which takes you to a web page where you can select a database to search (such as: EBSCO, ProQuest, JSTOR, CQ Researcher, Lexis-Nexis). You can find databases by searching for their titles, or by looking at databases by subject (Engineering, Sociology, Art, etc.). After you select a database, you can search it for articles on your topic.
