Databases allow you to search for citations and full-text articles in popular magazines & scholarly journals
Databases cover all sorts of subjects and are especially useful for current information
Databases index information which has gone through an editorial review process
Databases are structured and allow you to find information more precisely
By setting limiters in databases, you can specify "scholarly journal" and "full-text"
Where can you find databases? On the library's homepage @Database Vendors
Help! I need an article not available online. If you find a citation for an article that is not available to you online, you have options to get that article.
1. Ask a librarian for help. Librarians are experts in finding articles for you.
2. Check our Journal Search - search for a journal, magazine, or newspaper to find out if the library has access.
3. Interlibrary Loan - we can order an article for you from another library - this normally takes several days to receive the article. There is no fee to UAS students for Interlibrary Loans.
Never pay for an article on a publisher's website - ask a librarian for help and you'll save both time and money.
