Finding Articles

What Are Library Databases? 

Library databases are primarily used to find scholarly and peer-reviewed articles that are published on a particular topic. The UW Libraries provide access to more than 800 article databases. Many of these are subscription databases that the library pays to use. Others are open access and free of any charges. 

What Database Should I Use?

If you have chosen your topic, have a few keywords picked out, you can search the databases by subject listing to see some of the top databases in each field. You can also try some of the interdisciplinary databases listed below that cover a range of topics. Or, see the next box for some top selections based on general subjects.
