Library Database Demonstration

The library offers access to two types of databases: general (or multidisciplinary) and subject databases. General databases, like Academic Search Premier, index materials on a variety subject areas, while subject databases, like MLA International Bibliography, index materials on a specific topic. College composition research projects often involve both interdisciplinary and subject specific research. Therefore, it's a good idea to search both types. 

To access the library databases, just click on the "databases" button, located below the QuickSearch box, off of the library homepage. You can search databases by title or subject. 

Watch this video to see a demonstration of how to search the education database, ERIC. See the list below of recommended library databases to use to locate your secondary, peer-reviewed sources on composition.
