Scholarly Article Databases

The library has many different databases, some are multidisciplinary and some are subject specific (e.g., just covering literature or nursing). Below is a curated list of those most appropriate databases for conducting educational research.

Some databases are entirely scholarly in content while others are a mix of scholarly journals, reference, newspapers, and magazines.
