Find Articles Using Library Databases

The library subscribes to over 200 different online databases to provide access to articles for your research from Archaeology to Zoology.

A good starting place is Academic Search Complete (a broad, general, multi-disciplinary database), or you can try our Discovery search to search across mutliple databases and disciplines.

  • On the search results page, you can limit results to articles from magazines or peer-reviewed journals.
  • No PDF or HTML link to the full text? Click the Find It button under the article title to check for alternate access, or to request a copy via Interlibrary Loan.

Finding Articles Tutorial

When it's not in the library: InterLibrary Loan (Illiad)

Need a book or article but it's not located at the Mississippi State University Libraries?  Try using our InterLibrary Loan service, called Illiad.  This service lets you borrow a book or get a copy of an article from another library.  Depending on the material, access may take 2-7 working days.
