Searching Academic Search Complete

The library subscribes to many databases! Some databases are focused on certain disciplines, some contain more popular or professional content, some contain only scholarly content, and some have a mix. You can access the databases by going to our library homepage and clicking on the blue button, "Go to Database List."

This will take you to an alphabetized list of databases, including Academic Search Complete. Academic Search Complete contains a mix of scholarly, trade, professional, and popular articles.

If you are accessing databases off-campus, you will be prompted to login with your student email address and current password (the same one you would use for email or Canvas). 

Please watch the closed captioned video about how to search Academic Search Complete.

And remember, a typical result in Academic Search Complete will have these components:
