Finishing up the semester can be intense, so we’ll be sharing some helpful tips and reminders to help you #stresslessatthelibrary!
Here’s the full list of all the databases we have available, in the section called Online Resources A-Z!
The library subscribes to these databases to provide the full text of scholarly articles and ebooks (and much more) to Hampshire College students, staff, and faculty, anywhere you have a wifi connection. Don’t be limited by what Google thinks you want, or get discouraged when you hit paywalls. Go straight to a scholarly database in your discipline!
Which database is best, you ask? Well, each contains different stuff and has a different focus. Some of these have very clear names that explain what subjects they cover, such as PsycINFO, EconLit, or Social Sciences Database. Others are more…mysterious? JSTOR, Project Muse, ERIC? It’s hard know what kinds of articles are in each of these databases without googling each one for an explanation. (If you’re curious, JSTOR and Project MUSE are focused on providing articles and book chapters in the humanities and social sciences, and ERIC stands for Education Resources Info Center and it has scholarly articles on topics related to education.)
To find out which databases we recommend for which topics, you can take a look at our Subject Guides!
