About this page

Once you have selected a topic and made a list of keywords you are finally ready to begin looking for articles. Here are the key activities on this page:

  • Watch the videos "Getting Started with Articles+", "Getting Full Text and "Requesting an article through ILL."
  • Click on the subject terms listed below and view a few of the more common databases used at Rutgers. It is a good idea to start searching with a multidisciplinary database before you begin searching specific subject databases. Keep in mind that many topics will cross multiple subject headings.
