Narrative Leadership: 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).

A-Z Database List

You can search for databases by name or by subject.

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.

If it says "Not Available Online" then look for "Check Availability in SU Catalog"; if you see that then we may have a hardcopy version on the shelf in the library.

If you don't have either of those options then you can request it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)! There are loads of ways to get a copy of an article you are interested in.

Database List

Below are a couple of good databases to start your research, but we subscribe to so many more! Explore the list to the left if you think your topic needs a different direction.


In addition to searching in databases, you can also search pertinent journals directly.

A few journals to try might include:

  • Journal of Leadership & Organizational Studies
  • The Leadership Quarterly
  • Nonprofit Management and Leadership
  • The Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership
  • Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement
  • Journal of Community Engagement and Higher Education
