Academic Search Premier (EBSCO)
Description: This database covers almost all subject areas and is especially good at interdisciplinary areas. Good place to start for basic term papers. It contains full text articles for more than 2,100 journals.
Description: Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations. Google Scholar helps you identify the most relevant research across the world of scholarly research.
