Math: Find Articles


The library has access to a variety of databases.  The databases are the best way to search for peer reviewed research in your subject area.

Database Search Tips

  • You can't search databases in the same way you would search Google.  It is important to use the same terminology the database uses to yield positive search results.  If you find an article that relates to your research, check the subject headings the database uses to index the article.  Consider using those terms in your next search.
  • Connect subject terms with AND, OR, and NOT.  
  • Always read the abstract (summary of the article) to see if it relates to your topic.
  • E-mail articles to yourself.
  • Always double check the database automated citations.
