An Article Database

Article databases (also called periodical databases) include the citations of articles in magazines, journals and newspapers. Search It! also searches many of these databases at the same time.

Some article databases contain abstracts or brief summaries of the articles. Many contain the full text or entire content of whole articles as they originally appeared in the periodical.

Online article databases, purchased by the STLCC Libraries, are accessible from the library Web site. The libraries also own print indexes, good for researching older materials. For example, the New York Times print index goes back to 1851 at the Forest Park Library!
