Often, the best course of action is to begin with full-text databases. The articles you turn up by searching these databases are easily accessible in their entirety, and can be saved or emailed as necessary. The following services (and more besides) may be accessed through the Piedmont University Library website. (To reach this page on your own, select "Literature & Language" from the Browse by Subject drop-down menu under the Find Articles & More tab.)
Literary Journals and Information Resources
Occasionally you will need to broaden or narrow your search to achieve desired results. For broader topics, try Academic Search Complete by EBSCOHost or ProQuest Research Library. These extensive databases are also useful for multi-disciplinary research. For searches tighter in focus, consider the resources offered in these targeted subject areas:
History / Classics
Mythology & Folklore
African American Studies
Many online services contain thousands of article citations for which the full-text is not provided. Click the Full Text Finder button when it appears to determine whether you have access to the full-text article through another service.
If you really need an article that's not available to you online, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. Click on the link in the left-hand column to learn more.
