Databases and Journals

Databases are subscription resources that bring together articles and other types of research materials into one place with the assistance of a search engine. There are many databases you can use that provide access to journal articles, book chapters, book reviews, conference proceedings, dissertations, and more. Databases can be accessed via this guide or from the library's homepage.
