Have you ever found yourself asking this question when starting a class research project? So many resources--where to begin?

Research is never (or seldom) simple, but there is a good answer to the question about where to start. Two of our most often-used databases, Academic OneFile and Academic Search Premier, are multi-subject resources that can yield productive searches for a wide range of subjects in the humanities and social sciences.

Note that these databases allow you to limit searches to scholarly/peer-reviewed materials, and to full-text materials.

Both resources are available on this page, as well as on many subject pages. It's in your best interests to use both of them, because there will be a certain amount of overlap in the materials you will find, but there will also be some differences.
