Interdisciplinary Indexes & Databases

  • Expanded Academic ASAP
    Provides access to the full-text of more than 3,500 periodicals including more than 2,000 scholarly journals. Citations (or abstracts) are provided for an additional 1,500 titles. Coverage of a wide variety of topics in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences makes it an excellent database for the initial stages of research.
  • CBCA Complete  Icon
    This database, with 600 full text titles, is the most comprehensive Canadian reference collection available today. Accessible to readers and researchers at every level, CBCA Complete features a highly-respected, diversified mix of publications, including scholarly journals, trade publications, dissertations, books, newspapers and magazines.
  • Google Scholar
    A subset of regular Google, it allows users to search for articles from all disciplines. Content is heavily skewed towards scholarly and scientific information; however, humanities and social science content is present, as is non-scholarly material.

Getting the Full Text

Databases usually only contain information about articles, not the articles themselves. Here are three ways to get the full text of a journal article that you've identified in a database:

  1. Use the Get It @ York button to see if the library has a copy (electronically or in print).
  2. Search for the article in Google Scholar to see if there is a free copy online or use this Google Scholar link to check library subscriptions.
  3. Use RACER (interlibrary loan) to get an electronic copy of the article emailed to you from another university library.

RACER Interlibrary Loan

Need a book or article that's not in our catalogue? Use RACER (our interlibrary loan system) to borrow it from another university library.
