Finding Scholarly Material: Scout and the Databases

To find scholarly books and articles, I recommend using:

Library Guides created by PU librarians list the major databases in each subject.

Purdue Libraries list of DATABASES by subject. 

Other choices are to use PRIMO, the Libraries' Discovery tool or the Libraries E-Journal finder.

Besides the Libraries' resources, consider Google Scholar
