Databases

A database is an online collection of articles that you can search by topic or keyword.  Databases are great sources for articles because much of the material in ULS databases is the high quality, scholarly research information that most professors want.  Most of our databases offer links to the full text of articles. These databases are excellent starting points for your research because they have something on every subject:

Database Search

Search for or browse databases by subject, type of database, vendor, or title.

E-Journals

E-journals are digitized or born-digital journals, produced by journal publishers. You may want to search within a specific journal if you want to narrow your search pool to articles within a journal focused on a certain discipline or subject area.

E-Journal Search

Search for e-journals and other serials (i.e., magazines, and newspapers) by title, ISSN, or browsing. Use the PittCat Journal Finder that is in the top navigation of PittCat, or run a regular PittCat search.
