As a graduate student, your professors will expect you to find scholarly journal articles and papers on your own.
A great way to become familiar with journals in your research area is to use BrowZine. Drill down through the subjects, choose a journal to explore by selecting its cover image, then start browsing articles.
Subscription databases provided by the library are the best way to locate published research in your field. Here are some of the most frequently used databases for graduate studies.
Each database has its own search engine which will generate a list of journal articles and conference papers on your specified topic. In most cases the full text of the article will be available through a PDF link.
The library subscribes to over 300 databases and electronic resources. To see more database options, go to the A-Z Databases page and browse by Subject.
