Online databases are a good place to start when you are searching for articles -- especially scholarly and peer-reviewed articles. Databases are searchable collections of research and other articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers. You can search for articles by topic or, if you already know the information, by author or title.
Databases often include the full text of their articles, which allows you to read an article online, download it, or print a copy. Not all articles in a database include the article's full text.
The most effective way to search the online databases is to enter terms or keywords that effectively describe your topic.
The OSU Libraries has access to many additional databases on a variety of topics. You can search for a specific dataabse, if you know the name, or search by subject/area discipline using the drop-down menu on the Databases list page.

The turn around time is as fast as 1-2 days but we cannot guarantee this. It may take a little longer so a make sure you request early.
