Use research databases to search for articles. Most databases allow you to limit to scholarly or peer reviewed articles. Some databases will return full text articles, and abstracts or summaries of articles.
Use the GET ARTICLE or LINK TO FULL TEXT link to see if an article is available in another database. If an article is unavailable through Monmouth University Library it may be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
Subscription databases are available to Monmouth University students, faculty and staff. For remote log in, use your university username and password.
You can view the entire list of MU databases by subject or A to Z.
These multi-subject databases access a variety of sources, including newspapers, scholarly journals, and popular articles on a broad range of topics.
For background information or basics facts, try these alternatives to Wikipedia.
Google Scholar searches the internet for scholarly articles and often provides an abstract. Use the Journal Locator to see if the Library has access to the full text. If Monmouth doesn't have access, use Interlibrary Loan to request an article.
