The MSUB Library subscribes to many databases, which contain thousands of full-text, scholarly articles. Different databases have different appearances and user interfaces. In general, most offer similar search functionality.
Spend some time brainstorming keywords & search terms to improve your search results. When you find a good article, look at its Reference list or Works Cited page because these can often lead you to other good sources.
Keyword searching is the default in most databases.
Power Search simultaneously searches the majority of library databases and can be used to find scholarly articles. After you enter your search terms, narrow your search to "peer-reviewed journals" to focus on scholarly material. You can also narrow by date, full-text online, and resource type (i.e. newspaper, article, dissertations, etc). Also experiment with putting your search terms in quotations marks: "Circus Freaks."
