Selecting Databases to Search

GENERAL DATABASES

If you are not sure which database to search, start with the Discovery Search.

If you would like to start with a specific database instead, or your search results are not matching your expectations, select a specific, multi-disciplinary database such as Academic Search Complete.

or the ProQuest Research Library database.

 

SUBJECT SPECIFIC DATABASES
If you are doing research in a specific subject area, ideally you will also search a more subject-specific database as well.

For example, if you are trying to find articles from education journals for a research paper in an education class, try Education Research Complete or ProQuest Education Journals; if you are searching for articles from medical or nursing journals for a nursing class, try CINAHL Plus with Full Text, Ovid Nursing Full Text, or MEDLINE.

SELECTING A DATABASE ~ ACCESSING A SPECIFIC JOURNAL
If you would like to find journal articles from a specific journal, select Find Journals @ RMU.

Type in the journal name, and if we have access to the journal (through an online database subscription or through a print subscription), the Journal List search engine will display a link to the journal on the Journal List search screen that follows.
