As a Hofstra student, staff or faculty member, you have access to thousands of articles from our collection of electronic (online) research databases. You will be searching current issues for these periodicals as well as back issues.
We have several databases you can use to find articles including Academic Search Complete, Lexis Nexis Academic Universe, Factiva, and more. You may want to search across some of these sources at once using OneSearch which searches across many of our research databases in one search. It is very easy to get to OneSearch. First go to the Library Homepage at www.Hofstra.edu/Library/. You will see OneSearch--click in the blue bar and simply type your search in the box and you should get a list of results. Each result will indicate the resource type with an icon (academic journal, book, eBook, magazine, etc.). You can also use the limiters on the left side of the screen to limit to a particular resource type, publication date range, etc.
To find articles online using a particular database such as Academic Search Complete (for newspapers, magazines and academic journal articles) or Lexis Nexis Academic Universe (particularly good for newspapers), please go to the Library homepage at www.Hofstra.edu/Library > Databases by subject (light blue bar). You may be prompted for your Hofstra network account if you are off campus. You can access databases either by subject area or alphabetically by name of database. If you need further help identifying a particular database for your particular needs, you may want to call our reference desk and speak to a reference librarian (516-463-5962).
