Q. How do I find a database at the UTEP Library?


The University Library subscribes to over 300 electronic databases for articles and other resouces. From the library homepage, you can browse the databases by subject or alphabetically if you know the name of the database. To begin, click on the tab Articles & Databases.

 Selecting a subject area retrieves an alphabetical list of databases pertaining to that particular category. Each database has a brief description with access information. To access a database click on the link for the desired database.

 Alphabetically: If you know the name of the database, utilize the Alphabetical list of database title option. Click on the letter that corresponds to the database name. 

You will be taken to a page with an alphabetical list of databases based on the letter chosen. Click on the desired database, and you retrieve basic information about the database including a link to it.

Note: If you are off campus, it is recommended that you have your home device set up for the UTEP GlobalProtect VPN  for better connectivity and stability.

For more information on how to find the best database for your research, email a Librarian, stop by the Research & Instruction Desk on 2nd floor of the library, or call us at (915)747-5643.
