Articles

Article databases allow you to search for articles from many different magazines, newspapers and journals at the same time.

You will find many of these articles through the SEARCH ME! box; however, if you wish to search article databases separately, here are the ones to get you started!

All databases listed below are available to JIBC students and faculty.  If you are off-campus please contact the Library for a username and password for restricted databases 


Database Search Tips

1. Use the at the end of a word to find all endings: 
e.g. MORAL* will find MORAL, MORALS OR MORALITY

2. Use OR when you're not sure what terms to use: 
e.g. ETHICS OR MORALS

3. Use AND for fewer, but more precise, hits.  For best results, use the separate search boxes and the drop-down AND in ADVANCED SEARCH
e.g. First Search Box:  ETHIC* AND 
Second Search Box
:  LAW ENFORCEMENT OR POLICE
