Lehigh University Libraries - Library Guides

EES 200 Earth History Spring 2020

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 to find scholarly articles. Talk to the science librarian for further ideas. Make sure the items you bring up are *scholarly* articles. 


1. Start off by using Web of Science, since this is the database we covered in class. Do a search on a topic that relates to your topic, then find some relevant articles.  Look for related articles, articles that cite the article, and the article’s own cited references. 

2.  If you use Academic Search Premier, check off "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals" before running your search. That way you can exclude popular articles.

3. Also, 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 (for example, "geochemistry").

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?

You can use the Citation Linker 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.
