Library Resources for Social Innovation: Databases
Databases allow you to look for articles. How do you identify a scholarly article? Check out this cool page! Databases usually have a citation (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 (called the full text of the article). When that happens, you should see a link to an HTML or PDF document. If you do not see a link, click on the "Get it at GVSU" button.
Social Innovation Databases
Below I've listed databases that may be helpful for social innovation topics. Keep in mind that depending on your topic, databases in other disciplines might be useful in addition to searching the main library search box at the very top of this page. In order to see a list of databases by subject, go to the library homepage, then click 'databases'.
