Databases can be multidisciplinary (e.g. Academic Search Ultimate - EBSCO) or subject specific (e.g. Business Source Ultimate - EBSCO). 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:

  1. Locate and open the A-Z Database List link off the Shapiro Library Homepage.
  2. Locate and open the drop down labeled "All Subjects".

  3. 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.).
  4. Click on that subject to view the library databases covering the subject you've selected.
