How do I Find Databases and Articles . .

If you're seeking articles on a topic, search an Article Database.  Databases are collections of citations and articles that you can search by topic or subject.

The links below are good starting points for your searching, but the ULS offers hundreds of focused databases, and most offer links to the full text. To search a database, select the Databases tab on the ULS homepage:

  • If you know the name of the database you want to search, start at the Databases A-Z list.
  • If you're not sure which database to search, you can search databases in a particular Subject , or just ask a librarian for guidance by calling 412-648-3331 or chatting online at Ask-A-Librarian.
