Finding Articles

  • To find articles on a TOPIC or SUBJECT, use databases. Databases collect article references from many sources so you can search broadly.
  • If you have a reference and you want to FIND AN EXACT ARTICLE, use ZipSearch. Search for the article title and follow the links to the full text. Alternately, you can use Google Scholar from the UA Libraries home page, which is pretty good at locating EXACT article titles.
