About research databases

The library subscribes to hundreds of research databases about different disciplines and subjects. Use research databases in addition to OneSearch in order to find focused academic resources on your topic. You can use more specific keywords in research databases than you often can in OneSearch, so you can often uncover sources more directly in a database than you can in OneSearch.

Try some of the Folklore databases below, or check out the videos to learn how to search effectively. See also our guide on how to form your search to get better results: Library Research Databases: The Basics (PDF download).
