12 All about research guides

Databases are your #SuperSecretSearchSolution. Databases help you find relevant articles and sources more quickly than just searching a big tool like Google.

The Libraries Search box at lib.umn.edu searches across many different databases. That means sometimes it brings back TOO many results. One way to save time and focus your results is to search one specific database. To find databases relevant to your topic try looking for a Library research guide or subject guide.
