Below are listed resources for locating academic and non-academic articles. Since ACS is a very interdisciplinary course covering a wide range of subjects such as philosophy, history, and literature, the databases below are large multi-disciplinary databases. For more focused, subject specific databases, look at the subject guides page on the library's website.
For detailed instruction on how to search the library's search engine for articles watch the video Falvey Memorial Library's Search Engine, Pt. 2 located on the bottom half of our search page.
