Databases for articles on course themes

Below is not an exhaustive list. It depends what subject realm(s) your topic fits within.
You are encouraged to use Search Articles (see bottom of this page) and to try different databases within the subject area of your particular topic. You can select an appropriate databases from the U of T Libraries homepage by clicking "Databases by Subject" to the right of the default search box, then select an appropriate subject area and perform searches in the "best bets" databases.  

You can also use the Search Articles tool from the Library homepage, while it's not exhaustive, it searches many databases at once.
It is strongly recommended to:

  • use the "Advanced Search" so that you can enter synonymous terms more easily for each key concept/main theme 
  • to limit it to "scholarly journals" on the left side under "Search Filters." This will filter out newspaper and magazine articles which may be less helpful for your course assignment (unless those formats have been recommended by your instructor).
