An Article Database

Article databases (also called periodical indexes) include the citations of articles in magazines, journals, and newspapers.

Some article indexes contain abstracts or brief summaries of the articles. Most contain the full text or entire content of whole articles as they originally appeared in the periodical.

Online article databases purchased by the University Library are accessible from the library Web site.
