Looking for scholarly articles online? A library database can help!
A library database is an online, searchable collection of publications that can include journals, magazines, newspapers, e-books, images, and reference sources. Databases can include citations of the publications they index, the entire full-text publication, or both.
Some databases are general enough that you can find material from any discipline. Other databases are subject specific. Most databases you find through Middlebury Libraries are scholarly and have publications that are not available for free elsewhere online.
Interlibrary Loan is the answer!
If Middlebury does not have access to an article, request through Interlibrary Loan. In most cases you will receive a PDF version of the article that you can access online.
The easiest way to request articles through ILL is to search in LibrarySearch. Records for items not owned by the library will have a link below them to "request this item through interlibrary loan."
