Resources for International Students: How Do I Get an Article?

How do I get an article?

The library subscribes to more than 500 databases, or collections of information, many of which contain articles such as from academic journals not available for free outside of a library. You can find them on the Databases page of the library website. You can browse the list, search by subjects and types, and search these databases for sources.

Many databases are specialized in certain subject areas. Searching in the "wrong" database could result in not finding the most relevant information for your research. Every research project is different, so you can always contact a librarian by department or use one of our Research Subject Guides to determine the most relevant databases for your topic!
