Why use periodical articles?
Articles that appear in periodicals--such as newspapers, magazines, or scholarly journals--are good resources to use in your research. You can use periodical articles to support an argument, to explain a topic, or to provide additional perspectives on an issue.
Why do I have to use a database to find an article?
The library subscribes to databases to provide access to periodical articles. The content contained in these databases are typically not freely available on the internet. You have to pay to get access to them. But with an article database, the library is paying for that access for you. That's why you have to go through the database to get the articles.
Don't ever pay to download an article from the internet--talk to a librarian, and we can more than likely get you a copy of the article at no charge to you. That's what libraries do!
Academic Search Complete
There are many databases that can help you find articles from journals, but this database may be a good one to start with. Academic Search Premier connects you to articles in scholarly journals, as well as popular magazines and newspapers. Its coverage is multidisciplinary, which makes it a good general purpose source to start with.
