Having trouble finding articles?
Articles can be found in publications called magazines, journals, periodicals, newspapers and other publications. These have a regular publishing schedule e.g. daily, weekly, monthly annually, etc. Articles are good sources for the most recent research or information on a topic, coverage of a very narrow topic, coverage of current events.
Which article index or database do I use?This depends on your topic. A full list of links all the indexes and databases to which the Wyndham Robertson Library subscribes is available on the Articles & Databases page; this page also has the databases arranged by subject, to target the indexes and databases best suited to your topic.
Note: Some search results may link to subscription-only articles. If you find you're being asked to pay to view an article you find via Google Scholar, note the title and date of the article as well as the title of the journal it appears in. Then search the title in Journalfinder to see if we subscribe to this journal in print or online. If not, you can always make an Interlibrary Loan request to get a copy of the article from another library that does have a subscription. In short: don't pay to view an article if you don't have to!
Use a database that covers your subject area to find articles published on your topic.
