Library Resources for VCEC Students: Articles

Finding Articles

You have access to more than 30 databases that contain newspaper, magazine, and peer-reviewed journal articles on a variety of topics.  You can use OneSearch to find articles (see box below for more info on that), or use one of our databases.

Use our Databases A-Z list to see all databases.  Each database has a brief description of what types of articles and subjects may be found in the database. 

Databases that are a good place to start your research are:

ProQuest Research Library
Academic Search Complete

These are multidisciplinary databases with a variety of newspaper, magazine, and peer-reviewed journal articles.

Using OneSearch to Find Articles



Use OneSearch to search across all library resources.  Narrow your results to articles by using the options in the "Refine my Results" bar on the left.

In the "Format" section, select "Articles" (this option will give you magazine, newspaper, and peer-reviewed journal articles) or "Newspaper Articles" (this option will give you only newspaper articles).  The video below will walk you through this process.
