Using Library Article Databases
Question: How do I find better sources for my research?
Answer #2: Search a Library Article Database.
Library Article Databases are collections of articles from a variety of magazines, academic/scholarly journals, newspapers, e-books and more.
Working from off campus? Enter your library card number (on the back of your library card) and PIN number (the last four numbers of your phone number) to access these databases.
Stop by the Library reference desk or call (306-3267) if you have any trouble!
How Do I Search?
Tip #1: When searching for articles in a database, choose keywords instead of typing in a sentence or question.
Tip #2: When developing keywords, identify main ideas, synonyms, and broader, narrower, or related terms.
