Database Access

Good to Know

Choose the database for your research:

  • World News Digest: news reported in major newspapers and news magazines from around the world.
  • Issues & Controversies: up to date, in-depth and objective information on current controversial issues. Combines authoritative factual analysis with clear explanations of opposing points of view.
  • Today’s Science: presents the latest scientific discoveries. Topics include health, the environment, technology, earth and space science and science and society.

Search Tips

  • Use an asterisk (*) at the end of the root of a word to find all variants: pilot* will find pilot, pilots, piloting, etc.
  • When two or more words are entered, the database will search for them as an exact phrase. If you wish to avoid this, place AND between the words.
  • Quotation marks are required when searching for phrases that are three or more words long: “crew resource management”.
  • To limit your search to words found in article titles, click on the box Search Title Text Only.
