Searching for Career-Related Articles

The library has access to many databases that may be helpful to your career research, including:

  • Multidisciplinary databases, which allow you to search publications from a variety of subject areas; for example, Academic Search Complete.

  • Specialized subject databases, which include publications from specific fields or subject areas. For example, an education database, like ERIC, may include articles from education journals on the topic of careers in teaching.

To access article databases in addition to those listed below, click on Search and Find on the library's home page and then on "Databases & Guides by Subject."

Think creatively when researching careers. Even if you aren't interested in a career in business, a business database may give you information on the field you are interested in--or allow you to research a company you are interested in.

For research strategies, see the Library Search Strategies tab.
