Find Articles on a Topic

The main search box on the Libraries homepage is a great place to start when you are exploring a topic or just getting started.  If you have a more specific need, and know you want articles only, then use one of these more specialized databases.

Biological Abstracts - Covers journals, books, and other materials in the life sciences.

ProQuest Research Library - Large multi-disciplinary academic databases providing access to magazines and peer-reviewed journal articles.

ScienceDirect  - Over 1,800 full text journals in the areas of science, technology, and medicine.

Web of Science (ISI)
Web of Science includes Arts & Humanities Citation Index (2004-present), Science Citation Index Expanded (2004-present), and Social Sciences Citation Index (1979-present). It offers bibliographic citations and cited references from a broad range of disciplines, and is useful as a citation analysis tool.
