FAQs: How Do I Find and Access the Library Databases?

How to log onto the library databases both on- and off-campus, and troubleshooting problems

How do I find research databases for my topic or major? 

WKU Libraries Research Guides are created by our librarians to help you find research materials chosen specifically for your subject area. The guides are arranged by topic, and they include suggestions for article databases, along with suggestions for finding books, and contact information for the Subject Specialist Librarian for your topic. 

If you know the name of the database you want to use, you will find a link in our main Research Database List. It is simply a big alphabetical list of all the databases provided by WKU Libraries.
