Use Search It, our discovery tool, to locate books, articles, music, movies, ebooks and more. It searches our local collection and most, but not all, of our databases. Results can be refined various ways including Peer-reviewed Journals, Full Text resources, Topic, and Creation Date. Access it from the search box in the middle of the K-State Libraries homepage.
To locate articles in a database, first go to the K-State Libraries homepage, hover over the Research tab and choose Article Databases. One database that we recommend as a great place to start is ProQuest Research Library. We also have databases that cover specific topics. If you're interested in one of these, use the academic subject areas in the drop-down menu, which are organized according to K-State's colleges and departments.
Use the search box at the right of the databases page to locate databases by title and also by keywords in the database summaries. If you know the title of the database you need, browse our A-Z list, or use the drop-down menu titled All Tags, which includes a variety of tags such as newspapers, full-text, and dissertations.
Even with different interfaces, most databases have both basic and advanced search options and advanced search limits. Use keywords that describe your topic to discover articles. Depending on the results of your search, try various search terms and keyword combinations. Remember to use the subject headings or descriptors provided with each article for advanced searching.
You can find articles in a specific journal by using our Search It tool. From the middle of the Libraries' home page, click on "Search It Advanced." This displays a search box. You will want to apply the following search criteria:
Once your search results display, limit the entries to a specific journal by following these steps:
