MSF 612: Research Methods: Find Articles

Difference between EagleSearch and Databases

EagleSearch is our one-stop shop for articles and books (in all formats).  However, because it casts such a wide net, it can sometimes be hard to narrow down to what you need.

Using the individual databases can give you some advantages:

  • Much more focused results.
  • Can include subject terminology that will allow you to focus your search very specifically.
  • Setting up research profiles to automatically receive updates to saved searches.

Recommended Databases

Google Scholar
