FAQ: Databases & Scholarly Articles

On this page you will find 4 handout/video pairs detailing the optimal ways to find scholarly articles using Schewe Library's databases and our Multi-Database Search.  We discuss how to find EBSCO databases, GALE databases, and also how to search all our databases at once (Multi-Database Search).

If you're having any problems, please don't hesitate to get in touch with one of the librarians listed in the righthand menu.
