Articles are usually published in magazines, journals, or newspapers. They provide information on a topic, and, depending on the publication of the article, may contain more current information on a topic than a book. The majority of our article collection may be found online through our database collection.

Use the following tips to improve your searches.
Search Terms: Create a list of key concepts and terms related to your subject. Try using a synonym of your search term if your initial search does not provide helpful results.
Combine Search Terms: Combine search terms with Boolean operators (AND, OR, and NOT).
Example: cancer AND (smoking OR tobacco) NOT astrology
Limit Results: Databases usually allow you to narrow your results down by publication date, item type (peer reviewed, newspaper, eBook, etc.), and other criteria.
