How do I figure out which database to use?
SLU Libraries provide access to more than 250 different databases! The number and variety of databases can sometimes make it difficult to determine which one is the right one to use for your particular research project. A good place to start for many projects is SLUth - Search Plus, which simultaneously searches the library catalog and several databases to find relevant books and articles.
Remember that you are always welcome to ask a librarian to suggest an appropriate database. We can often save you time by pointing you in the right direction, so please don't wait until you're totally confused and frustrated to ask for assistance!
