The A - Z Database List allows users to find and search individual databases that the library subscribes to. Users can view all the databases alphabetically, search for a database by title, or use the three dropdowns on the A - Z Database List to search for databases by subject, type, or vendor. Wave over the icons next to each database for more information about each one.
- Searching for resources within individual databases such as EBSCOhost, Project Muse, JSTOR, etc.
- Determining which databases would be best for your research depending on the subject you are researching, the types of sources you need, or the vendor who provides the database
- Requires users to search in each database individually to find sources--can be time consuming (with a few exceptions, e.g. EBSCOhost)
- Requires users to determine which database would be most appropriate for their research--users who are unsure which database to use should ask a librarian
Consider using the A - Z Database List primarily when you 1. Want to save time by searching in subject-specific, source type-specific, or vendor-specific database for sources 2. Have been given a recommended database to use by a professor or librarian 3. Have either a fairly specific topic or a broad topic in mind 4. Are interested in finding a wide variety of source types.
