Last Updated: Jul 2, 2020 2:28 PM

Before you search

searching the web picture

Before you search for articles, it can help to brainstorm a few keywords or phrases for the topic you are researching.

For example:

If I am trying to find articles on different subcultures within the United States, I might break down my keywords as follows: 

  • subculture
  • American
  • United States

Finding Articles at UB Libraries

There are two recommended ways you can choose to find scholarly articles at UB Libraries.


Everything Search

Think of the Everything Search as UB Libraries' equivalent to Google. 


Subject-specific Database Search

To get more focused, scholarly results, use a subject-specific database, like SocINDEX.
