Find Articles

One way to get articles (scholarly, news, trade, and popular) is by searching a database. Emmaus has a number of databases through two platforms, EBSCOhost and Gale. This page will walk you through how to find articles in both platforms.

EBSCOHOST ACCESS

Click here to access EBSCOhost.

See a written tutorial here or watch the video tutorial below.

If you are researching for a Bible class, the Atla Religion Database on EBSCOhost is a good starting point.

After this, you can select which databases you want to search. The database list includes short descriptions about the type of information in each database.

If you are searching the databases while off campus, you will need to enter a password. If you do not know what the password is, contact Mr. Rush.

GALE ACCESS

Click here to access Gale databases.

See a written tutorial here or watch the video tutorial below.

If you are researching for a professional degree class such as counseling, business, nursing, education, or others, the Gale database is a good starting point.

Once here, you can select a specific database to search depending on your subject, or you can use the Power Search option to search all databases.

If you are searching the databases while off campus, you will need to enter a password. If you do not know what the password is, contact Mr. Rush.
