Database Tips

Click on Databases from the Libraries homepage. Choose Find Databases by Subject or enter database name (i.e. JSTOR).

Click on Get it @ Duke to locate the full-text for items you find in the databases. A box will pop up and tell you if the item is available online. If it's not online, check the online catalog to see if we have the journal in print.

If you can't find the full-text, then chat with a librarian to double-check (or contact Danette, your course librarian).

Don't forget about Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery. Library staff do their best to get the materials that you need from libraries throughout the United States and around the world. If you find a book or journal/magazine article that we don't have in our collection, go ahead and submit a Interlibrary request right away.  Depending on where the staff locate your request, it could take anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks or more.

How do I submit a request?  First, you need to create an account.  To do that, go to Interlibrary Requests and click on the "Request a Title" link. Once you create an account, you can simply use your netID and password to submit requests.

Search in databases to find articles and book chapters on your topic


The Libraries Databases are collections of scholarly materials in all disciplines that are arranged and classified by subjects and keywords. Some databases are very subject-specific, some are specific types of materials--for example primary sources, newspapers, encyclopedias, or streaming videos. 
You can find a listing of all the databases here, and find different subjects from the "All Subjects" drop-down menu on the left side of the screen.
