Article Indexes

Academic Search Complete
A general index, covering c. 1990 to present. Some other indexes supplied by Ebsco can be searched simultaneously.

Essay and General Literature Index
Indexes chapters in books.

Good for full text backfiles of major academic journals, but not for very current topics.

Google Scholar
Less specialized, only free sources, but sometimes a "quick and dirty" starting place.


For indexes dealing with specific geographic areas or historical periods, see the subdivisions indicated by the tabs above.
