Database Profiles

Don't know which database to use for your research project? Use this guide to learn about the databases that the library provides access to.


Google Scholar Search

Know the name of an article but nothing else? Google Scholar is a good place to start! Once you find the article you're looking for, use the UI Link to access it through City Tech databases.

Google Scholar is also useful for finding other articles by the same authors, if they have a profile. Click on a hyperlinked name to see a list of their publications, as well as information on how often that author's articles are cited and co-authors of their publications.


Google Scholar is a place to search broadly for scholarly literature across all disciplines. Its familiar Google setting makes it fairly easy to use, and it has its uses. It's a good place to start, but more specific and focused databases exist. (You can explore those databases on the library's website here or keep poking around this Guide!)
