The databases are online indexes to the contents of journals, magazines, and newspapers. They are what you'd use to find articles on a particular topic. The NMSU Library has access to nearly 150 different databases, many of which are subject-specific. However, there are many that are very useful for basic research needs.
The following databases would be a good to get to know as you work on your research for this class. Remember, every database has a specific purpose. If you aren't finding what you are looking for, you might want to try another database. Or, feel free to ask us!
1. See if NMSU has access to it electronically.
2. If is is not available in print, order it via Interlibrary Loan.
Many researchers are finding it handy to use Google Scholar to find references to journal citations. The steps outlined below describe how researchers at NMSU can customize Google Scholar to facilitate exporting the citations to EndNoteWeb.
First, about Google Scholar:
Setting the preferences is necessary when using a computer with an off-campus IP address. This will let you use the New Mexico State University Library Full-Text @ NMSU links for citations as well as export the citations to EndNote Basic.
