Database Searching Overview

Databases have different journals included as well as different subject vocabularies. There are a few platforms (EBSCO, ProQuest) that share identical navigation with other databases on the platform. The information on this page is intended to be an introduction to database searching. Working with a librarian and consulting the help menu (or both!) for each database is recommended.
