Article Databases

You can use article databases to find articles from magazines, newspapers, scholarly journals, and trade journals. 

When accessing the databases from off campus, you will be asked to input your MyPima username and password.

    Tips for Using Databases

    Features:  You can print, email, and save articles from databases.

    Limiters:  After your initial search, you may be able to limit your results by topc by using the SUBJECT HEADINGS or DESCRIPTORS.

    Cite:  Many of the library databases include MLA citations. If you use an article from a database, you can simply copy the MLA citation into your Works Cited page! (Although you should always look them over to make sure they are correct.)
