Finding Articles

 How Do I Find Articles on the Library Website?


 Step 1: Know Your Information Need
  • Review your assignment.
  • Identify the information sources required for your assignment. Knowing what kind of sources you need to use will determine how you search the library databases. Often in academic research you will be required to use peer-reviewed, scholarly articles. You might also be able to use magazine or news articles.
  • Look for other information clues in your assignment such as, peer-reviewed, scholarly, current.
 Step 2: Create A Search Strategy
  • watch "Creating a Search Strategy" video
  • take your time with this step and remember that your search strategy might change, as well as your topic. This is part of the research process.

More About Databases

About the Snow College Database Search
​​​​Use the Snow College Database Search to find articles, electronic books, streaming video, images and more for your research assignments. View the how to Find Scholarly Sources video tutorial to learn how to use the database search.
Need a Specific Database for Your Topic?
If you don't find what you need using the Snow College Database Search, try using our A-Z list of Databases. The A-Z list provides links to specific library databases. Read the description of the database to learn what is in each database. If your assignment requires you to use a certain database, like Academic Search Ultimate, you will find the link to that database on our A-Z database list.
Use the Subject Guides
We have created subject guides that suggest databases that are best for different subjects. You can find the links to these subject library guides on this page.
