Q. How do I use a database?

Answer

The online databases at CSULA are a way to help you locate material for your research on a given topic.  If you want to search a database for specific information you will first need to determine where that information might reside.

To use a database, go to the Articles & Databases tab located on the University Library home page, then select one of the subjects in the dropdown menu that best describes the topic your research covers.  Click the GO button to access the database descriptions.  The next screen will list the most useful databases according to your subject.  If one of the descriptions seems like a good fit, click on the hyperlinked database name, then proceed with searching for articles to support your research.

For help searching database articles please speak with a research consultant or a subject librarian.
