Library Databases

Use the “Database Directory (A-Z)” list if you know which database you want to use, and use the "All Subjects" drop-down menu to help you decide on a database if you’re not sure. You can narrow down your choices using its ten categories. Click on the database name on either list to find out the contents of the database and what years it covers.

If you became somewhat familiar with ProQuest when you took the Library Tutorial, you’ll be glad to know that there are other ProQuest databases in most subject categories, so you’ll already know how to search them.

If you're doing an argument paper, remember that in class I suggested that certain document types could be really useful, such as "editorial", "interview", "letter to the editor", etc., in order to get someone's opinion on the topic. Another thing that can be very helpful is to think about the kinds of sources that can be useful for your topic. If, for example, your issue is something that's really important in the field of your major, look for the topic in trade journals. You can make that selection in ProQuest and a number of other databases.
