Search Library Databases

UCR Library provides access to hundreds of databases across all disciplines. You can search for articles within them by author or topic and limit by a number of criteria. You can also try general databases like Academic Search Complete or Web of Science, which contain records for millions of articles in all disciplines. Many databases have images, music, videos and other materials in addition to articles.”

Most databases provide access or links to the full-text of articles - just click "view online," "PDF," or "UC e-Links."

Some databases are specialized by topic, time period, or source; others offer particular formats, such as newspapers, images or datasets. You might be surprised how specific some of the databases are! Check your subject guide to see which databases are recommended for your discipline.

To create a subset of databases tailored to your needs, use the filters (subject, format, etc.) found on the left side of the Databases page.
