The topics in this guide are interdisciplinary; scholars in culture studies, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and more research all of them. Therefore, the range of databases is broad.
All databases require a campus log in if you're off-campus.
The two best places to start are SouthernSearch and Google Scholar. Southernsearch searches many of our databases and can be limited to articles in peer-reviewed journals using options on the left when you receive the initial results. Google Scholar is exceptionally broad and easy to search.
All print journals are shelved in alphabetical order by title on the ground floor
IT printers on the first floor allow you to scan books or documents. There is a printer located by the IT Help Desk and another near the reference stacks. Scanning to your email is free. Copying and printing is 5 cents for a single side black and white page and 8 cents for a double-side page. Color printing is 25 cents for a single page and 40 cents for a double-side page. Assistance with scanning using the IT printers is provided by the IT Help Desk on the first floor.
Journals on microfilm or microfiche are shelved in the Microforms Area. Most of the readers are also printers. Ask for assistance in the Technical Services area.
