Library databases are a great place to find scholarly journal articles or other sources for your paper. Each database contains articles on topics within different subject areas. If the full text isn’t right there, click the "Find It" link. If we don’t have the article, you can request it from another library by clicking the “get this article or book chapter” link. (The turnaround time on this is usually about 1-3 days.)
A database of articles on a wide variety of subjects, both scholarly and non-scholarly. If there is no full text PDF or HTML, click the Find It link to get to the full text and/or request it through interlibrary loan.

Not finding what you need in one of these databases? Contact your liaison librarian to the right, and/or check out the databases by subject page for subject-specific databases.
Finding a source full-text from a citation
Determine what kind of source it is. Is it a book chapter? A journal article?
If it is a book, look in the catalog to see if we own it or if you need to Interlibrary Loan it (request it from another library).
If it is an article, use the Journal List to search for the journal title to see which database it is in. If we don't own it, use the Find It links to request the title. If it's not in a database, use Interlibrary Loan to request the article.
