Foundation: Search for an Article

Why Search CCS Databases?

Academic articles often will not appear on websites searched by Google because they are stored in subscription-only databases that provide limited access. The CCS Library subscribes to a large number of databases that will help you in more detailed research. 

You can search the databases by subject (CCS departments), or type (articles, eBooks, images, news, etc.). The Library staff have also included some open access databases that are high quality.
