Languages, Literatures and Cultures Resources

Find resources related to Languages, Literatures and Cultures.

Library Databases

Library databases are designed to help you find articles (or chapters, conference reports, etc.) on a topic.

Most of our databases contain the full text of the article, link to that full text in another subscribed resource, or provide a link to request the item through Interlibrary Borrowing. If you need help, please ask a librarian.

To find out if we subscribe to a specific database, or to locate a database for your subject area, visit

  • With Databases & More selected, you can search for a specific database by title. This search will bring you to a screen with the database listed; click its title and begin searching for articles. 
  • If you don't know the name of a database, you can search for databases by subject area. With Databases & More selected, type your discipline (example: communications). This search will bring you to a list of all library databases that have been tagged for that subject area. At the top of the page, you can search within the list or use the drop-down menus to locate what you need. Locate a database and click its title to begin searching for articles.

Note: You can also search for databases, articles, and more by searching in OneSearch (with "OneSearch" selected). This search will bring you to the OneSearch product rather than the databases listing.
