To browse for articles on a topic in Computer Science, go to one of the databases listed in this guide (e.g. Science Direct, MathSciNet, Ebsco Academic Search Premier). Using the Advanced Search, key in a search term or two, or an author’s name and click on the search button. If you get too many hits, try adding a keyword(s) (maybe words from the title of a specific work) to narrow your subject down.
|If you’re searching a citation database like
MathSciNet, you’ll need to see if the library subscribes to the journal in which the article was published. Open up another window to our homepage and click on our Journals link (icon to the right). Type in the title of the journal, click on the Search button and then click on the links (if any) listed below.
