Help Finding Articles

Content section: 

You can find articles by searching inside library-licensed article databases.

  1. Before you can start your search you must choose a relevant database. Identify the subject areas relevant to your topic and consider the kinds of sources you need to find:
    • Is your topic multidisciplinary or specialized?
    • Do you need scholarly/academic/peer-reviewed articles?
    • Are you looking for popular articles from magazines or newspapers, written for a general audience?
    • Do you need primary sources?
  2. Browse the list of databases to find your subject area(s). If you're unsure where to start try one of the general interdisciplinary databases.
  3. Databases will provide direct links to full text when available or an UCeLinks button. Use UCeLinks to locate or request an article not included in UC Berkeley’s subscriptions.
