On the databases page you will find more than 300 different databases. To determine which one is best for your project, you can use the menu at the top of the page to limit to a particular subject. 

A few general guidelines:

  • If you're doing research for an introductory course, such as ENGL100, try ProQuest Research Library. It's a great place to start.
  • If you need recent newspaper articles, try LexisNexis Academic's "Search the News" function.
