Doing Research

An introduction to library research and finding the best sources.

Which Database is Right?

You can search all the library's databases at once, but that's like drinking from a fire hose.  Pick the best database for the job, and your life will be easier.

  • Go to our database page
  • Pick the subject you want from the "By Subject" filter at the top of the page.
  • Click on the best database for your needs. If off-campus, you will  need to log in with your Portal username and password, plus input a code received by text or email from our proxy server. 
  • Ask a librarian for help if you have trouble.
  • Search away!
