General databases like ProQuest and Ebsco are convenient to find a few quick articles, but they do not cover any subject area in great depth.

To conduct a more thorough search of relevant publications on your topic, use the resources recommended on our Resources by Subject lists.

If you are embarking on a major research project, you may wish to contact your subject librarian for an appointment. She or he can assist you in identifying the most important databases for your topic.
