        Offers previews of books, with link to interlibrary loan.

      Periodical articles

      • Academic Search Complete
        A subscription database. Good starting place for journals, and includes the full text of about 3000 journals. Limit to "peer reviewed" to find only scholarly articles. Back issues of journals begin as early as 1990. Recent issues may not be included yet, due to publisher agreement. Journals held in Trexler Library are marked accordingly.

        Archive from Stanford University of scholarly journals in all subject areas.

        A subscription database. Standard index for American history. Some full text.

      Search engines

      • Google
        Non-selective. One of the largest web crawlers.
      • Google Scholar
        An open-access web crawler that looks for content it identifies as "scholarly." Emphasis is on books and journal articles. Intended as a "federated search" to search across disciplines (weighted toward sciences and social sciences). Not always full text. Check our Journal Locator (see above) to see if Muhlenberg has access to the full text.
      • Voice of the Shuttle
