Top databases to search for scholarly journal articles

There are some really good databases available for finding information in Modern Languages (you can find more under the Key Resources tab). We would recommend getting started with the following:

One Search is a good place to start searching for books, ebooksjournal articles, and our e-journal content all at once.

  • Use the Content Type, Subject Terms and Publication Date options on the left to refine your search.
