Finding Scholarly Articles in Electronic Databases

What is an electronic database anyway?

The Library has a number of electronic databases for finding articles in journals and some books.  Not everything you find will contain the full text of the articles. Some will only provide abstracts and/or citations. You can search by keywords, subjects, titles, and authors in order to retrieve articles from scholarly journals, newspapers, news magazines, encyclopedias and popular magazines--see below for descriptions of some databases that would be helpful in finding materials for your research.
