To find a specific database, click on ALL DATABASES on the library homepage (on the right-hand side, under QUICK LINKS.)

Across the top of the next page, you will see the letters of the alphabet.  Click on the one that corresponds to the database you want: J for JSTOR, A for Academic Search Complete, L for LexisNexis Academic, W for Web of Knowledge, etc.

Then scroll down until you see the name of the database and click on that.  If you are off-campus, you will be asked for your NetID and NetID password.

If you're not sure which database to use, click on the Browse by subject link at the top of the DATABASES homepage and choose a subject area.

An even better solution is to click on SUBJECT GUIDES at the top of the Library homepage and find the one that corresponds to your class or subject area.  Most subject guides include a list of recommended databases for doing research in that area or for a specific course.
