Below are selected databases most closely related to writing, rhetoric, communication, and media generally.

Simultaneous searching

With the exception of Web of Science, the databases to the left can be searched simultaneously. Open one, then look for the Choose databases link above the Select a field box. Put a check mark in the box by the databases you want to search and then click the OK button.

You can use FindIt to do a broad search of the Libraries catalog and many of our databases.

If the full text isn't online...

  • If you can't get to the full text of the article from the particular database, try pasting the title of the article into FindIt.
  • If the article doesn't come up, go to our journal search page and type in the name of the journal/magazine/newspaper the article is in.
  • If we don't have access to the journal, request the article through Interlibrary Loan.
