While the default library search engine, Summon, will allow you to find a great deal of articles, UBC subscribes to a number of specific databases that can help you focus your search. You can choose to look for articles written by discipline (i.e. anthropologists, sociologists, etc.) or by geographic region (e.g. South Asia)
