Databases can be multidisciplinary (e.g. Academic Search Complete) or subject specific (e.g. Business Source Complete). Sometimes searching in a subject-specific database is the most effective way to find information on a topic you are researching.
Follow these steps to find a database on a specific subject:
- Locate and open the A - Z Database List link off the Shapiro Library Homepage.
- Locate and open the drop down labeled "All Subjects".
- Scroll down the alphabetical listing of database subject groups until you locate the one that best matches your topic (e.g. Business, History, Management, Nursing, Statistics, etc.).
- Click on that subject to view the library databases covering the subject you've selected.
