Finding academic journal articles

  Finding Academic Journal Articles

in the Wintec Library Databases

Almost all of our journal articles are available through OneSearch, and that is the easiest way to search generally for articles, but there are times when you might want to search a database individually. Our top three databases are covered on this page, along with some helpful tips on using them, and you can find a full A-Z list of all of our databases by clicking here.

Think you want to try a general search first? Go to OneSearch!

Remember, you can always email your Subject Librarian or come to the Library Information Desk for help!
