Electronic Resources

Our electronic databases, including academic journals and articles, images and digital collections, streaming audio and video media, newspapers, and more, are all organized in our Electronic Resources Guide.

Finding Articles

There are a couple of ways to find academic articles for your research:

  • OneSearch: Use this resource if you are looking for articles that address a multidisciplinary topic or you are just beginning your research. OneSearch searches most of our electronic resources as well as those located in the library (books, paper journals, etc.). See OneSearch Tips & Tools: Searching for search tips.
  • Electronic Databases: If you are doing more advanced research in a specific discipline, take a look at the Electronic Resources page to find our electronic databases. Select the tab for the general subject area of your research.
    • This list contains all of the electronic resource databases subscribed to by our library.
