What to do if you don't know which database to use

If you need to find an article but aren't sure which library database to use, you have several options. Here are a few of them:
  • Ask for help. Librarians at the reference desk can help you find what you're looking for, or at least get you on the right path. You can also call (254-968-9249) or ask for help via our "Ask a Librarian" form.
  • Try Discovery. Discovery searches most of the library's databases and can be a big help if you're not sure where to start. 
  • Try one of the databases on the appropriate "Research Guides by subject" page. These pages include lists of the best databases for whichever subject you choose.
