A Few Databases To Get Started

  • Academic Search Complete -- A database covering all subjects, scholarly AND magazine/newspapers.
  • Proquest Databases -- Search 80+ databases covering all subjects, scholarly AND magazine/newspapers.
  • JSTOR -- covers all subjects. All scholarly.
  • Project Muse -- multi-subject, all scholarly.

Another Option: Use the COMBINED SEARCH tab in discoverE
