FYS: The Art and Science of Living Well : Databases and Journal Articles

Finding E-books

General Databases

The databases listed in this box cover a wide variety of topics, and can be used for any subject. 

Subject-Specific Databases

These databases cover specific subjects, specifically ones that provide large amounts of resources on psychology, religion, and physical health. 

Other Resources Available in the Library

Encyclopedias provide a small amount of important information on a vast range of subjects. They are useful for learning the basics of a topic before beginning more in-depth research. 

Dissertations are very long essays on particular subjects, and are very useful and often overlooked in the research process. They are longer than the standard journal articles, but are usually shorter than books. It is best to start by reading the abstract and the table of contents, so you can see which parts of the dissertation may be helpful without reading the entire essay.
