There are two main approaches to searching for articles through the ACC Libraries site. You can search for articles using the main search box on the library home page, or, you can search in specific databases. Both approaches are outlines below.
When you do a search on a topic in the main box on the home page, there is a tab on the results list labeled "Journals, magazines, news. Clicking on that tab will provide a list of resources across all our databases, regardless of topic.
Pro: You'll find something quick
Con: You may have to look through a lot -- and it can be overwhelming
Tip: Be sure to use the Full Text limiter on the right. And, if you need to, choose the Scholarly (Peer-reviewed) Articles limiter. This second one is optional, depending on your needs.

Pro: More search and limiter options
Con: Take a few more clicks to get to articles
