If you have a topic in your mind and need to find articles on your topic the best place to start is the relevant databases.
Databases allow you to search for scholarly journal articles, book chapters and conference papers. Some databases include the full text. Most databases can be accessed from off-campus. Enter your SMU ID and password.
If you look for a particular article or if you look for articles on your topic and do not know which database you can use, use the library search box to run a simple search across databases in the Multidisciplinary "Best Bets" and Information Systems sections.
