Finding Scholarly Articles

Given the interdisciplinary nature of  MHS research, you may need to use multiple databases during your research. To find the complete list of databases by subject, visit the Search for a Database page and use the pulldown menu to select a subject (Philosophy, Religion, Psychology, Literature, etc.)   If your needs are not met with any of these databases, ask a librarian for additional suggestions specific to your research topic.

An important question to ask before you begin your research is who?  Who might be writing about your topic?  A medical researcher? A historian? A sociologist? An anthropologist? 

Also ask, what type of information you need.  Do you need research articles (see above) or do you need newspaper articles, legislative information, or statistics?
