    How to.....

    Article databases

    Articles can be found by searching in the Library databases. 

    • Academic Search Premier
      Good starting place, it covers all subjects (science, law, policy, business, etc.)
    • Environment Index
      This database is best used for policy aspects of endangered species.
    • GreenFILE (EBSCO)
      Covers all aspects of human impact to the environment. Its collection of scholarly, government and general-interest titles.
    • Lexis Nexis
      Use this database for legal information.
    • Database List by Subject
      Choose by broad topic: Biology, International Affairs, ect.

    Finding the actual article

    From within a database, look for either of these icons:  HTML Full Text or the PDF,  to take you to the article. If they don't appear, use the Find It @SacState link,  which can usually be found at the end of a database record summary to determine if the article is in a different database.

    The Journal Titles A-Z link (under Resources & Collections on the Library homepage) will allow you to search for e-journal titles, and then you can search for your particular article from within the journal.

    Last, try searching for the article in Google Scholar, and use the Find It link (if there is one) to connect you to the article. From off-campus, this will only work if you have changed your settings. Go to the Research Guide, Google Scholar, for more information on setting it up correctly,
