Using Databases

The library has access to a number of different databases that will help you with your historical research.

Use the article databases to search for citations, abstracts and full-text articles.

Make sure you try your search in multiple databases since different databases have access to different journals.

If full-text is not available in your database, first check the Journal Finder to check for access in one of our other databases.  If still not available, you can request articles through Interlibrary Loan.
