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 Databases by Title and Subject list (see link below).

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