Academic Search Complete

You will need to find an outside, scholarly article for your paper. Academic Search Complete contains full-text access to the academic journals that contain scholarly articles, and may be a good place for you to start! 

Academic Search Complete is a multi-disciplinary database which means:

1. Because it is "multi-disciplinary" that means it covers a bunch of different subjects! Psychology, history, english, political science, you name it!

2. As a database, that means it is a searchable collection of materials--scholarly articles, magazines, newspapers, book chapters, and even images.

You can use the link below to search ASC directly, or you can access Academic Search Complete from the library website:

Library Homepage (>GALILEO and Databases-->Databases A-Z-->"A"-->Academic Search Complete

Remember, if you are off-campus, you will need the GALILEO Password.

Also note that there are quite a few cool things you can do in Academic Search Complete.

1. You can email an article to yourself by pressing the little envelope icon to the right once you've found and clicked on an article you like.

2. You can also cite an article by clicking on the "cite" button to the right once you've found and clicked on an article you like.

**A super helpful tip for finding scholarly materials!**

When you search, each result will have a little icon to the left. Look for icons that say "academic journal"; there is a good chance that will be a scholarly source.
