ENG 130 - English Comp (Ady): Searching your topic

Background Information

Encyclopedias, such as Wikipedia, provide you with background information on a subject, but don't go in depth on a topic. 

Use them for:

  • a basic overview
  • a brief chronology or historical context
  • key concepts or themes, terms for searching in databases

Finding a Full-Text Journal Article

Some of our databases provide full-text articles (indicated by a PDF or HTML link after the citation).  Others only show you the titles of articles.  For these, click Article Linker to find out whether we own the journal in print and/or online.

If we do not have access to the article you need, you can request it (free of charge).  After logging into your InterLibrary Loan account, the system will automatically fill out the necessary information - you just need to hit Submit Request at the bottom of the page!
