Where Do I Find Articles?

The best place to find articles is to search the Library's databases. They contain magazines, journals, newspapers, reference books, video files, audio files, and podcasts

What databases will be the best for this course?

Consider those on the Databases for Arts, Music & Theater page.

Kirtland Librarians recommend starting your search in the General OneFile database:

  • Database Tip: Put quotation marks around a name to search for both words together.  Ex:  "Jenny Holzer"
  • Database Tip: Use the options in the column on the right to choose different content type, choose the document type, and limit the time frame.
  • Database Tip: View the Quick Tips video on this page to learn more about database searching.
