It looks like you're using Internet Explorer 11 or older. This website works best with modern browsers such as the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge. If you continue with this browser, you may see unexpected results.
There are several reasons you may want to search in only one database:
If you are trying ZipSearch and are getting too many results, that is one way to limit your search
You only want one type of result, such as a biography or only articles about history
Many databases are not included or covered completely in ZipSearch, so they must be searched individually. For those databases with African content that are not in ZipSearch, see "Other databases".
How to get the article you find
You found the perfect article; now how do you get the full text?
Sometimes the complete article is available immediately. You will see a link for the PDF or HTML version of the full text if the article is available from that database. If it is available from another database that the University of Akron subscribes to, there will be a link that says "full text through LinkSource". If you click on that link, you should be redirected to the full text.
If the full text is not available, click on the button that says "request through InterLibrary Loan" to automatically request the item. If the database doesn't have that button, write down the citation information, and enter the request through InterLibrary Loan manually. (see Tutorial tab for help)
