Article Databases

The library has a large number of databases about a wide variety of subjects.. Below are just a few of the databases that you can use. Talk to the science librarian for further ideas.


Try Web of Science and GeoRef  (see below for links.)  Do a search on a topic that relates to your topic, then find some relevant articles.  Look for rticles that cite the article, the article’s own cited references, and related items.

You can also use Google Scholar. So that you see Lehigh Links to full text if you are off-campus, go the hamburger icon upper left, then select settings, then library links. Type in Lehigh and save. (Tip: use the Advanced Search feature, available by clicking on the hamburger, to give your search focus.)

The library has many subject library guides. For example, there are subject guides for earth sciences, biology, and chemistry. These may give you ideas about further databases to search for articles and information, especially if your topic spans different fields.

Interlibrary Loan

Use Interlibrary Loan to request a PDF of an article that isn't available at Lehigh or a scanned PDF of a print article that Lehigh owns. You will get an email when the article is ready for download.

Have citation, find article!

If you have a citation *to* that you found *within* an article (for example, in a footnote to article that you are reading), how can you locate the article?

See the tutorial Have Citation, Get Article here

You can use the Full Text Finder to see if Lehigh has access to a specific article or journal.

Also, you can use the library catalog to look up the journal title, then see if we have the specific article electronically or in print.
