Article IndexArticle Databases

Article databases (also called article indexes, online databases, or periodical indexes) include the citations of articles in magazines, journals and newspapers.

Many databases contain the full text of whole articles as they originally appeared in the periodical. Some article indexes contain abstracts or brief summaries of the articles.

Online article databases are accessible from your library website, The Library Network, or MeL (Michigan eLibrary).
