The database is the place to go when you are searching for articles. At the databases you will find:

    • Journal articles
    • Magazine articles
    • Conference articles
    • Newspaper articles
    • Conference proceedings
    • Multimedia sources
    • Reports
    • Dissertations
    • Standards
    • Unpublished papers
    • Statistics

The articles in the databases are free. Do not pay for an article. You will NEVER be asked to pay for an article when you begin your search at the library homepage.

If you do not know what database to use, we recommend you begin with Academic Search Complete. Academic Search Complete is an excellent source of scholarly journals in all academic disciplines.
