Start a Research Project

If you have questions about selecting and searching databases, finding journals, or searching the online catalog, please ask a Reference Librarian for assistance or call x6281.

If you're looking for articles on your research topic and trying to figure out which databases to search, start with a Subjects/Databases tab from the library homepage or browse through the A-Z list of databases.  A  database search will help you identify useful articles on your research topic, and many databases deliver the actual articles in full text online.

Choosing a Research Database:
If you are looking for some guidance on how to choose a database best suited to your own research interests, start in the Subject Research Guides area area of the Library website under Research Assistance. The library subscribes to a number of general-purpose and discipline-specific databases, and Research By Subject identifies useful print and electronic resources for all of Union's courses and programs.
