How to...

Find/Identify Articles:

  • Locate databases by name/keyword and read the description to see if it is for your subject. For example, if you are searching for articles about the works of Kentucky writer Bobbie Ann Mason, look for literature in the databases search, then look for Bobbie Ann Mason and/or her works in the database(s) that look useful for this type of search.
  • Locate databases by subject. Use the Research Guide to find recommended databases by subject. Use Get Text at UK to see if the full-text of the article is available.

Get Articles (by  journal, magazine or newspaper name):

Use Databases to Find and Get Articles Right Away

Search databases using keywords and subjects (also called descriptors) to identify articles that will be useful for your research. Use databases to clearly identify and get the article you want if you already know something specific about it: the title or author, for example.
