These databases include searchable records for millions of journal, magazine, and newspaper articles. Several of them include additional types of materials. In many subject areas, these databases will be your primary access to the research materials you need.
At a bare minimum, a search in one of these databases can give you a list of articles relevant to your particular research interest.
You can explore the list by clicking on "Research Guides by Subject" under "Find Articles and More" on the library home page. From there you can select a general list or a subject related list of databases. Most of these databases will require you to login with your Oswego CTS account Laker NetID and password. If you need assistance, be sure to ask for help. If you have difficulty accessing our resources, please see our page on Web Site Technical Information and Help.
An added feature in most of the research databases is an abstract of each article. This abstract is a summary of the article so you can make a better decision about whether to obtain and read the full article. For a basic introduction to searching for articles, see section 4, Finding Journal Articles, in the Lake Effect Research Challenge.
A growing number of the databases not only list the articles and summarize them, but also provide the full text of the articles online. In addition, we provide access to publishers' web sites that provide full text articles online. These services give you the same text that you would see in the print version. These articles can usually be printed out or saved to a disk.
Many of the databases provide a "LinkSource Link to Full Text," "See if in Penfield Library or Online," or "Find Text" link for articles that are not in the current database. A click on this link will search for the article in our other databases and in our library catalog, and usually take you straight to the article if it is available. You can also use our Journals list online to see if a particular journal title is available. Click on "Journals and Newspapers by Title" under "Find Articles and More" on the library home page, and select the option, "Search for a journal or newspaper title."
This service is available to our Distance Learners, who are taking most of their classes off-campus or on SUNY Learning Network. We do not, however, ship or transmit articles to addresses in Oswego's Zip Code, 13126. These articles will be delivered electronically through the ILLiad web service.
To receive articles electronically you will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader (more information) installed on your computer.
