Search for Articles

Try searching in these library databases to find articles on your topic. Tips:

  • If you find an article that looks good, check out its descriptors (or subject headings); these are the official words that the database uses to describe what the article is about. Click on these words, or do a new search using them, to find more articles on that topic.
  • Many databases have a way to let you limit to scholarly articles (sometimes also called academic or peer-reviewed): this can be useful if you want to screen out things like Time Magazine, USA Today, etc.
  • Not finding what you need? Brainstorm different keywords that describe your topic. Try looking in more than one database. And, of course, you can always ask a librarian!
