  • America: History and Life is the main database for finding citations & abstracts for U.S. History (includes modern culture and ancient archaeology.)
  • Biosis covers traditional areas of biology (botany, zoology and microbiology), as well as biochemistry, biophysics, and bioengineering.
  • MLA International Bibliography The essential index for literary criticism articles.
  • JSTOR provides full-text access to thousands of journals, primarily across the social sciences.
  • Web of Science - articles from across the sciences & social sciences. This is one of the best interdisciplinary databases.
