Access library databases using the A-Z list, subject-specific research guides, and Google Scholar.
Library databases contain a lot more than scholarly articles! If you're looking for magazine or newspaper articles, ebooks, technical reports and standards, or other research materials, you can find them there. Each item on our A-Z list has a detailed description of its contents. If you have questions about what to use, look at our Subject Guides (linked below), or contact your liaison librarian using the Subject Librarians tab.
Many things you find on Google will be on publisher web sites, which will ask you to pay for access to those articles. Don’t do it! Our library frequently has what you need in full-text, and if we don’t have access to it, we’ll get it for you through our Interlibrary Loan service for no charge. If you have a Google account, you can turn on our library’s full-text (Get It @ UMassD) links, so you can easily access articles from our journal subscriptions. These links also connect you seamlessly to our interlibrary loan service, which again is free for you to use.
