Find Articles

One way to get articles (scholarly, news, trade, and popular) is by searching a database. Emmaus has a number of databases through two platforms, EBSCOhost and Gale. This page will walk you through how to find articles in both platforms.

EBSCOhost Access


If you're on campus, you can use the link above to connect to EBSCOhost. If you're off-campus, log in to elearn, then "enroll" in Library Resources to access EBSCOhost.

When you connect with EBSCOhost, select the first service listed, EBSCOhost web.

After this, you can select which databases you want to search. The database list includes short descriptions about the type of information in each database.
