Q. Which database should I use?


Which Database Should I Use?



No doubt, it can be confusing to figure out which of the Library's 100+ databases will be best for your topic. However, there are some quick and easy ways to figure it out:

  • Check out our Subject Guides. You'll see a list of core databases in each that cover that particular area of study.
  • Use our All-Knight Search tool. This will give you results from just about all of our databases. You can also get a sense of which individual databases are finding the most results for your search by examining the Content Providers facet at the bottom left of the results page.
  • Contact the Reference Desk. Our librarians will be happy to help you figure out the best resource for your topic.
