How to Find Articles

Choose a Database

Begin by selecting the database you want to search. Some databases are multidisciplinary, and have articles on many subjects. Other databases focus on specific subject areas.

EBSCOhost provides a brief description of each database to help you choose the best one for your research. 

To view EBSCOhost databases:

  • Click on "Databases and Electronic Resources" from the library website's menu (on the left side of the page).

  • Search using important keywords or subject words that describe your topic.
