Databases A-Z

A listing of all the electronic resources to which the library subscribes for its customers.  Most allow access from home and many provide full-text magazine and journal articles.

Need Scholarly Journals?
Some of our databases, particularly Academic Search Premier, include some scholarly and professional journals. Check the "Scholarly," "Peer Reviewed" or "Refereed Publications" option when you do your search. If you are a college or university student, your school library likely subscribes to databases with better coverage of scholarly and professional journals, which you can probably access using your student ID. See our Libraries & Library Catalogs page for links.

Looking for an article from a particular magazine? Click on the "Title list" or "Journal List" link next to a database to see what magazines, journals or newspapers are indexed in it and what the full-text coverage is.
