of electronic or "online" databases that contain journal, magazine and

For journal articles, we recommend that you
start with ProQuest or
SIRS Researcher. ProQuest
is a comprehensive collection that offers access to scholarly full-text
journals in a wide range of popular subject areas such as business,
education, literature, political science, and the sciences. Included in
ProQuest is a special add-on module of 301 journals in Psychology.
SIRS Researcher is somewhat smaller, but all the articles are full-text
and it includes a good range of small local and regional newspapers. It's
sometimes hard to decide which database is more relevant to your needs. To
help you decide, we have included a short summary that highlights each
database - and you can always call or
librarian with your questions!
To access any database from on-campus
or off-campus just click on the "AccessRIO"
