CIS 500-Level Research Resources: Finding Articles

A guide to library research resources for computer information/computer engineering upper level courses

Finding Articles

Use article databases to identify articles on specific topics, as well as to locate full-text electronic articles. Find them on the Databases & e-Reference page linked from the Library homepage. Specialized computer and engineering databases can be found on the Databases page by choosing "Computer Science" or "Engineering" from the Tags list on the right. Remote access is available for most journals.

Multdisciplinary databases such as Academic Search Complete should be used to ensure a comprehensive search. Once you have chosen your paper topic, consult a librarian to see which databases are the best suited for your reseach. Here is a webpage describing how to obtain a fulltext article.

Computer & Electrical Engineering Databases

These are the most directly focused databases for computer/information science and computer engineering.

Multidisciplinary Databases

These databases are more broadly focused, but provide access to many relevant journals not indexed in the primary computing related databases. They should be included in any comprehensive search.
