Search for articles and books across multiple databases simultaneously.
- Academic Search Premier
This easy to use, multi-disciplinary article database is the go-to resource for starting to research a topic. Note that you can limit to scholarly (peer reviewed) articles.
- LexisNexis Academic
Useful for legal research as well news and business.
- Worldwide Political Science Abstracts
Provides citations, abstracts, and indexing (no full text) of the international serials literature in political science and its complementary fields, including international relations, law, and public administration / policy.
This tool helps you to keep track of your research and generate a list of references in almost any citation format (APA, MLA, etc.).
- Find it!
Use the "find it" button from one of our 200+ article databases to connect you to the electronic text of the article you need.
- Google Scholar
With its broad reach and effective search algorithms, Google Scholar is quickly replacing databases for discovering content. Since not everything out there is free, you you may want to set up the 'find it at Boise State' feature. Go to settings/library links and type Boise State University, then check the box next to our access link and click save.
- Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
ILL will obtain books or articles that we don't own. This free service takes 1-3 business days for articles and about a week for books. If you prefer an e-book (usually faster), mention that in the notes.
