Using online databases

In order to find scholarly journal or popular magazine articles, you need to search the online databases.  Most often, the full text of the articles you find will be available in the databases. If not, however, do a “Journal Title” search in the Library Catalog on the name of the journal, magazine, or newspaper from which the article was published. The catalog will tell you if the library owns the issue you need.

Sample Search Strategies for the Databases
