Databases to Find Articles

Reference Desk Help

The CSS Library has many online databases to help you with your research. They contain primarily articles from periodicals such as journals. There are  two types of databases including general databases, which contain articles on all types of topics and specialized ones designed for a specific subject  area such as nursing, education,  psychology, business, etc.

 If you are off-campus, you will be prompted to log in using your Novell username and password - the same as what you use for Blackboard, COR, and  your CSS Gmail. All databases to which the CSS Library subscribes

Finding Full-Text

If you cannot find the full-text to the article you are looking for in the database you are searching, try looking in the 
A to Z: Find Online & Print Journals list.

This will search both the CSS print subscriptions and all the CSS databases.

NOTE: be sure to search for the JOURNAL title NOT the article title!!
