Resources - A Selection of Databases available from The University of Iowa Libraries

A selection of just some of the many databases available for finding articles is listed below. Other indexes and databases can be found through the Find Resources section of the Library's website. 

These databases help you locate relevant articles in scholarly journals, magazines and newspapers. In many cases, the full text of the article is available right in the database. When that is not the case, always click on the gold UILink UILink button  to see if we subscribe to the periodical in print or online. Chances are good that we do.
