Finding Articles

Go to our Databases page, which gives FGCU affiliates access to more than 400 databases. Each database searches a different set of publications, sometimes on a specific subject. View by title or subject or search for a specific database if you know the name.

Searching for the first time on a general topic? Try out one of our Multi-Subject databases. Good ones to start with are Academic Search Complete or ProQuest Central.
