All of the article databases help you find "scholarly" materials. (See the Scholarly vs. Popular tab for more information.) For college-level work you MUST use materials that are considered scholarly. The library helps you do this by giving you access to the databases your professors and instructors want you to use.
It is not possible to find individual articles in magazines, journals and newspapers in the library catalog. To do this you should use an article database. This is what you should know about how databases are organized and accessed:
All of the article databases can be used off-campus — all you need is your registered UDC ID card and access to the internet.
Finding Article Databases:
A to Z List: Each database (and other web-based resources) are listed alphabetically by title.
Subject List: Databases are grouped by the subject area that they cover.
These links are also found on the library's home page.
This is a short list of article databases that are particularly useful for undergraduates.
Academic Search Premier This is a very large and general database that covers multiple subject areas. It provides some full-text access.
Project MUSE Journals in literature and criticism, history, the visual and performing arts, cultural studies, education, political science, gender studies, economics, and many others.
