How Do I… Find the Right Database?
Finding a specific database
If you know exactly what database you are looking for, the best way to access it is to search for the title of the database in our database list.
You can also find databases by searching for the title in Search It, although it can be trickier. Among your results list, look for the result that is labeled ‘Database.’ Click on the title and look under ‘Access Options’ for the link to enter the database.
Finding databases for a specific subject
If you aren’t sure what database would be most helpful, but your topic is focused on a specific subject, you can browse our database list and narrow your options by subject at the top of the page. Another way to find subject-specific resources is to visit our subject & resource guides.
Finding databases for a specific type of information
If you need a certain type of information, such as audio, images, newspaper articles, encyclopedia entries, or more, you can browse our database list and narrow your options by type at the top of the page.
