As the summer semester ends and we prepare for fall, it may be helpful to review some of our most popular databases. Knowing which databases to search--and how to search within them--will save you from stress when your next assignment rolls around.

Our general databases provide a variety of resources to help get you started. These are just a few of the databases available through the COD Library.

Academic Search Complete contains indexing and full text for 9100 journals. 7100 of these journals are peer-reviewed scholarly titles. This collection provides both popular and scholarly journal coverage for nearly all academic areas of study - including social sciences, humanities, education, computer sciences, engineering, physics, chemistry, language and linguistics, arts & literature, medical sciences and ethnic studies. Academic Search Complete is a great resource for general research.

CQ Researcher offers in-depth, non-biased coverage of today's most important issues. Each report is on a single topic more than 12,000 words in text and extensive bibliographies. Each weekly issue provides up-to-date information on controversial subjects reported by CQ's staff of experienced reporters.

To access databases from home, you'll need a COD student or staff library card. Not sure where to start? Ask a librarian, or check out our Research Fundamentals guide.
