Research Databases

Electronic databases enable users to find journal, magazine and newspaper articles, book reviews, chapters in books, essays, images, definitions, and other documents not usually listed in library catalogs. Some databases provide citations and abstracts only; others also provide the full text of documents on all subjects; and some provide the electronic version of fiction and nonfiction books and textbooks. Records in these databases are fully indexed by author, title, subject headings, etc., and thus these databases provide powerful searchability.  To read a description of each of our major databases, please click here.

Although the Library still maintains some active print subscriptions, the products listed below have allowed us to expand our collection of periodicals exponentially, while at the same time providing remote access even at times when the Library is closed.
