Advantages of Article Databases

Why not just use Google?

  • library databases contain full text of articles → make sure you selected "full text" on the search interface
  • you can narrow your search to particular dates, to scholarly (or peer-review) articles, to articles on particular subject, etc. → select the limits on the "Advanced Search" page or in the search results page - it only takes a couple of minutes to look through the interface
  • articles come with ready citations..though it is up to you to make sure the citations are correct → look for the "cite" or "email" links or icons on the page.
  • try the databases listed on this page - or select one (after reading the descriptions) from this complete list of CSM Library databases
