The following video demonstrates the basics of finding scholarly articles in RVOneSearch.

Subject Specific Databases

The library subscribes to databases that contain journals specific to a particular discipline or set of related disciplines. When searching these databases, you may retrieve fewer results, but they will be targeted to the subject area you are researching. 

When thinking about your topic, consider which broad subject area it relates to (for example, Criminal Justice, or History, or Psychology). Select that subject from the Databases by Subject drop down menu below or on the full list of databases.

Databases by Subject

Find Journals and Other Periodicals through the Library

Search Full Text Finder to determine if the library has a specific journal, magazine, or newspaper in a database or in print. 

Search: Library Publications

Google Scholar

Google Scholar performs a Google search of scholarly content on the internet. You may not have free access to all of the articles found in a Google Scholar search. However, you can check if the library has access to the article by searching the article title in RVOneSearch or using Full Text Finder to search for the journal that published the article.
