Find Journal Articles in Specialized Databases

Why use journal articles?

  •     They are more up-to-date than most books.
  •     They are “peer reviewed” by other scholars in the field who check for academic integrity.
  •     Every article will contain cited references that appear as footnotes and/or bibliographies.
  •     Print journals cannot be signed out of the Library but many of them are now available in e-format.
