Find Articles

Use the library’s databases to search for articles on your subject. Articles can come from different types of sources: newspapers, general magazines, or scholarly journals for example. Here are two good databases to start with:

ProQuest Research Library

Academic Search Premier

For more options see our Databases by Subject page

Need scholarly articles?
Limit your searches to scholarly/academic/peer reviewed sources by checking the boxes in the database before you search.
Limiting Searches

Need the full text of an article?
If you’re in a database, try the FindIt@Dowling link in the database to see if the full text is available. If you have a citation, use the journal locator to see if Dowling has access to the issue of the journal you need. If not, then put in an interlibrary loan request.
