Andersen Library subscribes to many databases that can be used to find journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, which you can use as long as you are on the UW-Whitewater campus. These are some good ones to start with:
Once you have left campus there are databases you can use through BadgerLink.
Access more online Andersen Library databases by selecting Articles & Databases from the Find menu on any Library webpage. Then do one of the following:
When formulating your search, be thorough by using synonyms and truncation when there are multiple ways to refer to an idea. Be focused by using "and" to combine different ideas together.
Sample search in ScienceDirect College Edition:
"carbon nanotubes" and memory and computer*
sponge* and (oil or grease)
Most databases have some full text articles in addition to article citations. When an article is not available in that database, use button/link to determine whether and where the UWW libraries have it.
In Research@UWW, go to the View It section of an article's record.
In either case, look in the View It section next to see if there is a link to the online article. If it is not online, scroll down to the Get It section to see if the article is physically in one of the UWW libraries. If it is not available either way, you may order the article by clicking on the We Can Get it for You (Document Delivery/ILLiad) link which will appear in the Get It area.
If you are not in a database or Research@UWW, use the Journal Search (also on the libraries' homepage) to determine whether and where the Library has a particular periodical (journal, magazine, newspaper, etc.), then search the periodical for the desired article.
