Databases to Find Articles

Stained Glass on Library Leather Door

The CSS Library has many online databases to help you with your research. Specialized databases are for a specific subject area such as nursing, education, psychology, business, etc. These would contain academic articles that are from academic, peer-reviewed journals.

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!!

Instructions for finding the full-text of an article
