Searching for Articles

Try searching these databases for citations to articles, books, and more.  Use the  link in a database to see if the full text of an article is online; to find a print copy of a journal in the Library; or to place an Interlibrary Loan request for journals the Library does not have.

Some searching tips:

  • Start with a broad search using relevant keywords to get an idea of how articles are indexed in a database.
  • Use quotation marks to search for phrases instead of individual keywords.
  • Add the term AND to your search to look for both terms in your results; use OR to look for one or the other.  A search for Voltaire AND Candide will look only for records with both those words in the article title or abstract, but a search for Voltaire OR Candide will look for records that include either one of those words.
  • Try truncation, which in many databases means inserting an asterisk (*).  Searching for Ital* will look for records that include the words Italy, Italian, Italians, Italiano, etc.
