About the Article Quick Search
The Article Quick Search can be an excellent way to get started on a research project:
- Retrieves results from more than 20 EBSCOhost company databases.
- Search results include articles from newspapers, magazines, academic and professional journals and other sources.
- Search results include full-text articles but also items that are not immediately available in full text.
Note that the quick search provides results from less than half of the total number of databases to which Stafford Library subscribes. We recommend using the Article Quick Search as only a first step in exploring a research topic. For in-depth results, search individual databases directly.
