SOCI 101 (Illig): Find Articles

When and Where Can I Access Databases?

Databases are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can use them on or off campus. If you are using them from off campus you will be prompted to put in your SU username and password (the same one you use for Gull Net, MyClasses, or an SU computer).

Article Databases: an A-Z List

You can search for databases by name or by subject.

Databases A-Z List

Getting Full Text

Some databases will have the full text of the entire article available within the database, others will only have a citation for the article. When there is only a citation available, you will see a yellow find it button. This button will give you options for getting a full text version of the article. If we have access to it in another database it will be linked there.

Not Available in a Database?

We have two options if something is not available in full text in a database.

Check Availability in SU Catalog: If it says this then we may have a hardcopy version on the shelf in the library. Find the journal on the shelf, scan the article you need, and then leave the journal on the nearest cart!

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) means that someone in SU Libraries will do their best to locate a copy of your article from another library. This usually happens with 24 hours during the work week.

Additional Databases

Some, like JSTOR, are more general multisubject databases. Others may only be useful to certain members in your group as determined by their subtopic.
