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 most of the databases that contain scholarly journal articles. You can even select that you want only full text articles, so that your results will not contain abstracts of articles you would have to borrow through Interlibrary Loan. In your results list, make sure the article is from an Academic Journal or a Magazine/Newspaper. There should be an icon to the left of the results that indicates which type.

  • You can also select individual article databases, such as JSTOR, from the Complete List of Resources. A few great databases to use would be Academic Search Complete, JSTOR,Opposing Viewpoints, or a subject specific database such as Biological Abstracts, Environment Complete or Business Complete. For a list of subject specific databases click on the link that reads Research Guides and find the guide related to your topic.
