Library Resources for Public, Nonprofit and Health Administration: Databases

A guide to library resources and websites.

How to find articles

Databases allow you to look for articles. Databases usually have citations (information about an article such as the title, author, name of the journal or magazine the article appeared in, volume and issue, date, and pages) and sometimes they will also contain an abstract, or summary, of the article.

Databases also often have information about other types of resources - books, essays or chapters, government documents, etc.

Some databases will also have the articles themselves (the full text of the article). When that happens, you will see a link to an HTML or PDF document. If you do not see a link, click on Get it at GVSUthe "Get it at GVSU" button.
