How to Find Databases

In this short video, you will learn how to find databases from the Sacred Heart University Library's website.

Databases contain published articles from journals, newspapers and magazines, as well as reference materials, reports and other documents. The SHU Library provides access both to general and multidisciplinary databases, and to databases specific to a particular subject or field of study.

You can access the databases from the library’s website in a couple of ways. One way is to look at all our databases in the Databases A-Z section. Simply click the “Databases A-Z” link in the “Search” dropdown menu.

This allows you to browse all our databases alphabetically and can be a quick way to find a familiar database that you know.

The other way to find databases is through the Databases by Subject section. Simply click the “Databases by Subject” link in the “Research Support” dropdown menu.

This page allows you to browse by subject or discipline, such as Business, Education or Health Sciences. There are subject categories representing all of the fields of study at Sacred Heart University.
