There are a few ways to access articles through the databases provided by the University Libraries. The quickest may be through the University Libraries homepage.

Going to Databases, users will find research databases organized in alphabetical order, database title/keyword, type, vendor, and by subject discipline. Using specific databases will help narrow down the returns on keyword and subject searches and may make for more efficient researching.

Feel free to Ask Us! through the online form, chat, phone, or at the Information Desk should any help be needed.

The Start Your Research search box on the library homepage should be adequate for a very quick initial search covering many subjects. Here you can search for articles by entering a keyword, title, or author into the search box. If full text or peer-reviewed or scholarly articles are needed, these search features can be activated by clicking the Advanced Search link below the search box then selecting the desired limiters. Remember, however, Start Your Research does not search all Texas State University Libraries' databases. You may need to search some subject-specific databases directly for best results.
