Find Scholarly Articles

Databases are collections of resources, often organized by discipline (such as English, agriculture, or business) or format (such as streaming video, image, or news). The databases below are great places to start for you research projects!

Health and Medicine Resources

Search with keywords and limiters in these specific health databases. Databases are like a filing cabinet, containing tons of information. 

Individual medical journals. If a database is the filing cabinet, the journal is an individual file folder. This file folder contains many pieces of paper, or articles. Use these journals to browse and get topic and keyword ideas.


News sources are considered popular sources. This includes magazines and newspapers, which are called periodicals. However, news fits into other popular categories, such as video broadcasts or websites. Find your news story across multiple outlets to cut down on bias.
