When looking for an article you will usually be looking for a journal or newspaper article. The TWU library subscribes to thousands of journals and newspapers, both electronically and in print.
To find JOURNAL ARTICLES about a specific topic or keyword:
Select databases from the Databases A-Z Title List to find articles about a specific topic or keyword. The Libraries subscribe to many different databases most of which contain citations to journal articles. Many databases link to the full-text of the journal articles. Search for Journal Articles by keyword, author, article title, or other citation information.
If you know which database you want, you can begin with the Databases A-Z Title List. If you are not sure which database is best for your research, you should refer to the Subject LibGuides or start your search with Academic Search Complete which is a good database to search for general articles on almost any topic.
