The best way to find journal articles on a topic is to use a relevant database. Databases tend to focus on a single subject area, like Literature or Nursing.  So, if you know you need an article on a specific topic (e.g. literary criticism) or written by an expert in a specific subject (e.g. a nurse), going to a database for that field is the best choice.

  • If you know the subject area you need then see the recommended databases for that subject (link below).
  • You can also access databases by name if you already know the one you want to search (link below).






Not sure about which database to search for your topic? Try our Research Guides which our librarians have created to help you get started (link below) or ask us! Library staff are happy to help you find what you need.
