Need articles but not sure where to start? These are some recommended databases for getting started.
- Google Scholar - with UM links
The Google Scholar search engine that searches for scholarly documents on the World Wide Web, with the added feature of MGet IT (formerly SFX) links from University of Michigan at Ann Arbor that connect you to the online and print versions held by the University Library.
ArticlesPlus is perhaps best described as "Google for the library's online content - without the ads!" From a simple single search box, ArticlesPlus searches full-text content as well as metadata from a wide variety of sources and returns a list of relevancy-ranked results.
Covers a broad range of scholarly journals, magazines, trade publications and dissertations in many different disciplines.
- MLA International Bibliography
The MLA International Bibliography is a subject index for books, articles and websites published on modern languages, literatures, folklore, and linguistics. It is produced by the Modern Language Association (MLA), an organization dedicated to the study and teaching of language and literature. The electronic version of the Bibliography dates back to 1925 and contains over 2 million citations from more than 4,400 periodicals (including peer-reviewed e-journals) and 1,000 book publishers.
