Research Help: Databases and Articles

Database List Explanation

Bunch Library provides access to over 300 databases! There are a few ways to go about selecting a relevant database from this lengthy list. 

  1. Go through a research guide. Librarians have identified the most used resources for each subject and these are highlighted on the first page of each research guide.
  2. On the list of databases, use the subject drop down menu at the top to see a short list of databases containing relevant information for that discipline.
  3. On the list of databases, use the database type drop down menu at the top to see databases by type. For example, choose "Primary Sources"  or "Newspapers" to see what databases include these types of resources.  

Interlibrary Loan

If you have checked Bunch Library and no full-text access is available, the next step is to request an Interlibrary Loan (ILL). This service allows you to request items from outside of the Bunch Library collections for free. Check out the ILL page to learn more and place a request.
