Articles & Databases Print Page


Welcome educators!  Use your GSU login to access databases from off campus. 
If you want full-text articles or peer-reviewed journals, select these options on a database search page.

To find articles in education journals, we recommend you start with the following three databases.
You have two ways to search these education databases:

  • you can search these databases one at a time by clicking on their individual names

  • or start your search in the EBSCO vendor and select searching all three databases at the same time

             It is a good idea to create a personal account in EBSCO so you can save your search histories and articles
            anytime you login, not just during your current session.  Click on "sign in" to create a new account in EBSCO.

To broaden your search for more articles in education or related disciplines, try these databases:

To see all GSU Library databases, view the Databases A-Z List and Research Guides:

  • The Databases A-Z List is an alphabetical list of all databases at GSU Library.  Use it for database descriptions, or for a quick link when you know the name of a database you want to search. 
  • Remember to view Research Guides (aka LibGuides) for recommended databases in specific disciplines and subject areas.

To find a specific journal in the library, use the Journal Title List search:

  • Use the Journal Title List search box to see if the library subscribes to a particular journal.  
  • Type title words of a journal in the search box to see if it is available in a database or in print. If the journal is in a database, you can browse through issues or search for articles within that one publication.  Please note that not all publication dates may be available. 
  • If you find an article on the web, do not pay if there is a fee to download. Instead, type the journal title on the Journal Title List page to see if we have that journal in a database or in print.

To find Google Scholar articles that may be freely available in a GSU database ...

To find non-journal publications or specialized information sources, try these library databases:

To request articles from other libraries (interlibrary loan) ...

  • If GSU Library does not subscribe to a journal, or the issue is not available, you may use the Online Request Forms link in your myGSU Library portal.
