Best Bet Library Databases

Begin searching for journal articles in the databases listed below.  As your topic develops, you may find one database to be more useful than another.   Also consider citation searching to find additional information on your topic. Backward citation searching can find original research and put it in context.  Forward citation searching will find works that have cited a paper since it was published.

Research Tip: Find Text Button

The Find Text Button

Many of our databases have this SFX Find Text Button button, which searches for the full-text of the article in our collections. If we don't have it electronically, look for the "Request article scan" link in the "Get It" section.
