INTERDISCIPLINARY INDEXES & DATABASES

Use these databases to locate citations or full text for journal articles, conference papers, technical reports and theses. Once you have located relevant articles, search URSUS by journal or book title to determine if Fogler Library owns the item. We may own journals in print or online or both formats. Need to check the record listed as Serials (for print holdings) and E-Serials (for electronic holdings). Must click on the "Restricted Access UM" link to see the online holdings. If we do not own the item you need, consider requesting through Interlibrary Loan. Remember most of the articles listed in these databases cannot be located by using a regular web browser such as Google. These databases provide the means to locating scholarly research articles.
