Save Yourself Some Time: Use a Database

The best way to find articles is using online databases. Databases collect articles from print periodicals and may include abstracts or full text articles. Content of the article can be printed, downloaded or emailed. Most of our databases come to us through the TexShare program of the Texas State Library, although COM Library subscribes to some databases independently. Through all of these databases we have access to:

  • Full-text articles from popular periodicals
  • Medical resources and health information eBooks
  • Academic reference materials
  • Newspapers and magazines from around the world
  • Transcripts from television news shows and National Public Radio
  • Research on public and private companies, here and abroad
  • Consumer marketing data and emerging technology reports
  • Genealogy resources
  • Latest breaking news and daily updates from newspaper wire services
  • Hundreds of popular periodicals, including Business Week, Rolling Stone, and Smithsonian
  • Streaming media

All COM Library Databases are available from the Databases by Subject LibGuide.
