Q. What's the best database to use to find articles for my research?
The library has ~400 databases, and the best one for you is going to depend on your research topic, among other things. Here are a few things you can do:
- Tell a librarian what your topic/research question is, and ask them what the best database for articles would be for you.
- Browse through the databases by discipline, and choose one based on its description. You can find a dropdown menu with databases grouped by discipline here.
- It's a pretty safe bet that MinerQuest-- our search tool that searches a lot of our databases at once-- will have something for you. Type the main ideas of your topic here.
To get the most out of MinerQuest or any other database you end up using, we recommend watching the brief videos below.
