Subject Databases

Is your topic in a particular subject area?  Which electronic database you use depends on your topic.

ABI/INFORM® indexes articles in business-related subjects such as management, finance, and advertising
Compendex® indexes Engineering articles and conference proceedings
General Science Full Text indexes articles related to a broad range of science fields
