CSM Libraries provide access to many databases where you can find articles, journals, eBooks, book chapters, and reference sources (such as encyclopedias, quick introductions to a topic, and dictionaries). 

Databases may look different and include different subjects or types of source, but ALL databases will have a few common features:

  1. Search Box(es) - enter keywords
  2. Limit / Refine Search Results - by date, source type, subject, peer-review, etc.
  3. Tools to Manage Your Research - link (URL), copy, save, email, print, cite, export, etc.

Note: If you are off-campus, you will need to login to myCSMD after clicking the database links.
