Find the right databases for your topic:
- When just getting started in research, look under "Databases by Subject" for the "Start Here" databases. You can limit your results to "Reference" items, which are great for background information on your topic.
- You can use CCA Library OneSearch to search across various book and article databases simultaneously. It includes journal articles, eBooks, and items in the physical library collection.
- If you find too many articles, try selecting "Databases by Subject" to dig deeper into the resources from a specific academic discipline. "General" databases are a good place to start because they cover multiple disciplines.
If you have an article citation:
- Select "Find Publications by Title" and search by the journal title. If it is available in full text, you can then browse to the issue you need by date.
Logging in from off-campus:
- When off campus you will need to use your Student ID number or S# to login. If you have any trouble logging in, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Library at 303.360.4736 for assistance.
