Calvin T. Ryan Library Research Guides
We have research guides for most subjects on campus with a page linking to the major databases in that field, often with advice or tips.
A-Z Databases by Title
A complete list of Calvin T. Ryan Library's database subscriptions.
Why Use Just One?
If you don't find what you need in one database, try another! Searching a second database (or more!) for a different but related subject can also provide useful breadth for your topic.
EbscoHost vs. ProQuest
EbscoHost and ProQuest aren't databases. They're companies that host databases. Lots of databases. Their logos appear prominently on the web pages, but knowing which vendor you used doesn't really help narrow the options if you're trying to retrace your search results.
The same situation applies to Thomson Reuters, Springer, Wiley, etc. Saying "I found this article in ProQuest" is like saying "I made this file with Microsoft"—it's true, but not a lot of help in finding the right program to open the file.
