Databases (Finding articles) Print Page

    Database Facts

The GT Library has 260+ databases.

All databases are accessible through the Find Articles (Databases) Page. Subject specific databases are also accessible on this Research Guide.

In order to access the GT Library databases you must be enrolled for a class in the current semester.

You can access databases off-campus. You will simply need to provide your GT username and password.

When using most style formats, you will need to cite an article from a database differently than an article from a print publication. The citations, style guides and tutorials guide will help you as you format your citations/bibliography.
