About Articles

  • "Articles" come from newspapers, magazines, or journals (collectively called periodicals)   
  • Unlike some Web pages, an article is edited and checked for accuracy 
  • Some periodicals are available in print, but they are often licensed for electronic format too
  • Articles are found by searching the library's article databases
  • Article databases let you search by many means (keyword, subject, date, type of article, etc.) for articles on your research topic 

General Article Databases

These databases are multidisciplinary, which means they cover all disciplines and topics.
