Library databases are specialized collections of articles and resources. They contain many resources you may not be able to access via Google and contain scholarly sources for college-level research.
When searching in databases, it's important to try more than one keyword to find what you need. The database will look specifically for the word you search so changing your words can help you find more articles. You can also combine different keywords to create more focused searches.
You can also use OneSearch to search many of the library's databases at once. After you search, use the filters on the left side to limit to articles.
