Google Scholar, Databases and Research: Other Options

What other options are there?

Scholar OneSearch, the large search box on the library's home page, is a way to search many of the library's subscription databases and the library's catalog, all at the same time.

Searching the library's databases from the home page will give you a list of results that is easier to refine than the results from Google Scholar. Options for lmiting your results include subject, language, and type of resource (peer-reviewed articles, books, or videos, for example)

You can also opt to use a single database. This option may be best if you have a specific topic, need to limit the number of your results, or want better control of your searches since the advanced features will let you narrow your choices.

Ebsco Databases

Near the top of any Ebsco database, you will see a link to choose databases.

Select this link to choose more than one database to search at once.

Which Database?

Want to search one database but aren't sure which one to choose?

Explore the research guides published by our research and instruction librarians. The guides are titled by subject, to help you begin.

Search Tip

Use both Google Scholar and library databases for more comprehensive searches.
