Finding Journal Articles

Up to now, you may have been able to rely on generic tools like LionSearch or Google Scholar to find articles. However, as you transition from college to the workplace, you will be expected to use the tools that are respected within your specific profession.  

What is the best journal database for you? It depends on your major and your topic. 

Below are database guides are created by librarians at University Park. You have access to all the online resources listed in them. To get started, choose the guide that best fits your needs. After opening a guide, look to the left side of the page and click on links to "databases" or "journals."

If none of these guides fits you, or you'd like to see a list of all the library's guides, take a look at the library's A-Z list of subject guides
