ENG 236 - Black American Literature: Poetry and Drama - Dr. Blaque: HOME -- Finding Articles on Library Databases

WHERE DO I FIND ARTICLES?


Databases for Magazine and Journal Articles

 

Start at the Library Home page. In the OMNISEARCH box in the center, at the bottom of the box is a link called

Articles and Databases portal

  • Academic Search Complete from EBSCO. Almost all the entries in this database have the article attached, which means it is a "full-text" database.  Also, it is part of the EBSCOHost interface, so you can use MY EBSCO to save the citations.  If you don't know about MY EBSCO, you should register at the "Sign In" tab at the top and set up an account.
  • Research Library from Proquest, like Academic Search Complete, is a database that has magazines, newspapers, and journals on all subjects. The information goes from everyday knowledge to highly complex research journals.
  • Lexis Nexis is the database to start with if your project is best researched by using information from newspapers, or if you need information that is local or regional.  Lexis also has excellent legal and business sources, so make sure you search NEWS.
  • JSTOR indexes only peer reviewed journals from all areas but is particularly strong in the humanities and social sciences.
