Selected Databases

Use databases to find articles on your topic. These databases are the best place to start.

Tips & Tricks

  • When searching databases, use AND, OR, and parentheses to focus your search.
  • The asterisk * symbol will search for all variations of a word. For example: basket* will search for baskets and basketry. Using quotes will search for a phrase.
  • Combine synonyms with OR and put them inside parentheses, like this:
(AI or "artificial intelligence") AND (education* or instruction*)
