Finding Articles

The library has different research tools to help you find journal articles:  

  • Databases - Library databases will help you find articles on a particular subject or topic.  Select a database that contains the type of articles you are looking for (e.g. women's studies, news, psychology, biography), and begin with a keyword search to narrow in on your specific topic.
  • Journals List - Use the journals list if you are looking for a specific article (for which you have basic citation information like the article title, journal title, author, etc.), or if you wish to search/browse the contents of a specific journal.

Find more information about articles, databases, and the Journals List below.
