Our upgraded Database Finder tool is here! 🎉

Search and browse the library's entire collection of databases in one place. It contains databases for all subjects that provide access to journals, newspapers, magazines, books, primary sources, and more.

What's New?

Our Database Finder tool now features user-friendly filters to sort databases by content type and vendor, insightful librarian reviews for informed selection, a new and trial database list for previewing emerging resources, and improved accessibility to ensure ease of use for all researchers.

Looking for something specific?

Use the Database Title/Keyword search box to find databases by name or relevant keywords quickly. To further refine your search, utilize the filter fields at the top, including options for subject areas, database types (e.g., databases with ebooks, streaming video/audio, or primary source content), and database vendors (like US Government, Oxford University Press, EBSCO, etc.).

You can explore your options by clicking on any of the filter fields and selecting from the dropdown list or typing in your criteria.
