Choosing a Database

The library has general databases, which means they have a little bit of everything and subject specific databases, meaning they have a lot of one or two things. When first starting your research I recommend starting in a general database and as you get a better idea of your topic and the scholarly conversation around it, move to a subject specific database.

Below you will find suggestions for getting started with both general and subject specific databases. This is not an exhaustive list of available databases but merely a jumping off point. You can find (and browse by subject) a full list of databases available through the library here!
