Library resources for journalism practice and research.

Magazine & journal databases

The UConn Library licenses dozens of research databases and thousands of academic journals - together totaling millions of dollars in annual investment - to support research throughout the University. Given the interdisciplinary nature of topics researched by journalists, more than one of the library's research databases - arranged in the library's Research Database Locator by title or subject - may have relevant content. As with other multidisciplinary fields, looking in multiple research databases can yield the best results.

Search tips:

  1. Experiment! Try different combinations of keywords - narrow to broad
  2. Use boolean logic connectors or and not within advanced search interfaces in journal research database. Using Or between synonyms or related concepts builds flexibility into the search, retrieving more results; And limits search results to only those where the concepts overlap
  3. Use the truncation symbol (usually an asterisk *) to find variations of root words; teen* in the example above searches for teenage, teen, teenager, etc.
  4. Searching for phrases in quotes forces the search to only retrieve articles where that exact string of characters appears.
