UALE Summer School for Union Women: Online Databases

Resources for the workshops offered by the regional summer institutes for union women sponsored by United Association for Labor Education.

Finding Articles

Google Scholar

Google Scholar searches the "free web" for citations and text of articles from academic journals.  It is NOT a substitute for an academic database, but it is a useful way to find scholarly articles quickly.  Check citation year! They are not listed in chronological order.  If you are using Goodle Scholar on campus, it will link to the full-text from an RUL database (if one is available).


Many public libraries subscribe to databases that library-card holders may use for free.  These databases vary but generally include full text articles related to business, health, general science and more.  Contact your local library for more information. 

Academic libraries located at community colleges and state supported universities may also offer relevant sources for members of the public.
