Tips for Finding Articles in Databases

thinkerThe library databases below provide citations for articles, book chapters, and more. Most focus on a specific topic, so they are great for deeper research.

  1. Choose a database.
  2. Search for keywords such as genres, topics, names of people, etc.
  3. Limit your results by date, language, and more with the the left-hand menu on the results page.

Finding Full Text

Some databases include full text articles along with the citations, but if you find a citation without full text:

  1. Search the journal title in our eJournal Locator.
  2. Click one of the resulting database titles with access.
  3. Find the correct year, volume, and issue number.
  4. Find the correct article and open the full text.

If full text is not available through the UHart Libraries, we can often get an electronic copy through Interlibrary Loan.
To make a request:

  1. In the database citation, look for the link to ILL this with ILLiad @ H.
  2. Log in to ILLiad.
    • If this is your first time, click Create an Account and fill in your information.
  3. The request form will auto-fill with information from the database citation.
  4. At the bottom, click Submit Request.

Usually a PDF copy will be sent via email within a few days, though some requests may take longer.
