Databases (also called periodical databases) include the citations of articles in magazines, journals and newspapers.
Some article indexes contain abstracts or brief summaries of the articles. A few contain the full text or entire content of whole articles as they originally appeared in the periodical.
Periodical databases , also referred to as Electronic Databases, have been purchased by the Library. You may access them through the library Web site when you are on campus and when you are off campus.
Use a Periodical Database:
- when you want to find articles on your topic in magazines, journals or newspapers
Examples of Periodical Databases
- General Science Full Text (a database of articles from journals in the field of science)
- Academic Search Premier (a general article database)
- CQ Researcher (a controversial topics database)
