        Periodical articles

        • Academic Search Complete
          A subscription database. Good starting place for journals from every discipline. 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.
        • JSTOR
          Archive from Stanford University of scholarly journals in all subject areas.
        • Project Muse
          Recent archive of journals from a number of academic presses.

        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.
