International Cultural Studies / Foreign Languages Research Guide

Find books, ebooks, journals, DVDs and Reference materials. Learn about researching cultures and languages in the library and on the web.


Database SearchTo search all our databases at once you can always use our library search.  

You can also search each database individually.  This is sometimes quicker and more accurate because you are searching one collection at a time and only looking through medical or science journals.  Think of it as searching for a sock in a sock drawer instead of rooting through an entire closet.  

This is a list of databases that focus on literature and language specific journals.  

If you want to know which database contains a specific journal, search our Journals A-Z List.
