READ: Select an Article Database (A step-by-step guide)

A database is a searchable electronic index of published articles and/or article citations. To locate articles, select one (or more) of the Krueger Library's databases that is appropriate for your topic.

NOTE: If you are off-campus or in the dorms, you will need to login with your StarID and password. This login will occur when you click to access a database.

  1. From the Library homepage, select the Databases tab.
  2.  Use button titled Databases Subject to choose a database by a subject area. For example:
    • Looking for articles on peer pressure and social media? Start with the Psychology or Communication Studies databases.
    • Looking for articles on caring for "prenatal care" and infants? Start with the Nursing and health related databases.
  3. Or use the ALL Databases or A to Z list if you know the Database's title.
  4. Read the descriptions to choose the best database. There are variety of databases for each subject. You can also consult with a librarian. Librarians are here to help you with your research.
  5. Do you have a broad topic or not sure what subject your topic falls under? Start with a general database by using the Select by Title or A-Z list, to choose a general database such as Academic Search Premier, MasterFILE Premier, or CQ Researcher (topical reports).
