Q. Which database should I use?

Answer

Start with our "Search Everything" Discovery tool on our home page, or here. However, it doesn't actually search everything, so your next stop should be ProQuest Central (make sure to click on "All databses" in the upper left corner before you search.

Our handout, Databases for General Research, is a good next step.

All off our databases can be found on our A-Z Database page. You can follow the links here, or from the Library's home page, click on the green button: Research Databases

Use the drop-down arrow to:

  • narrow databases by subject coverage (Once the subject loads, look for our Best Bets!)
  • find databases with a certain type of information, for example biographies, primary sources, or streaming audio and video.

Another good option is to check for a Research Guide for your class or subject area. If we have one, you can find our recommended databases.
