Students Studying Abroad: A Library Guide

A guide to the UVM Libraries for study abroad students

Locating articles by topic

When researching a topic, a recommended way to start is by using a broad, interdisciplinary database to locate journal articles.  Academic Search Premier is a great database to start with. 

The UVM Libraries subscribes to hundreds of databases to help you locate scholarly journal articles.  Choose a general, multi-subject resource to start, and then use a subject-specific database to get a greater depth of access to the subject literature.

From the main Research Databases page, use the pull-down meu labeled "All Subjects" to access lists of databases by subject.  Blue flags next to databases connote recommended resources and starting points.

Accessing articles of interest in databases

  • Follow links to the full-text article, if available.
  • Click on the External Link Icon button to see if we subscribe electronically to the journal. If so, you can access the article. 
  • If not, use Interlibrary Loan to request a PDF of the article.
