Articles and Databases
In order to broaden access to information outside the library's walls, the great majority of resources provided by Butler University Libraries are online or electronic resources linked through this site. Access to almost all our online research resources is provided through IP authentication, meaning access should be seamless and invisible when on-campus, even when bypassing the library's website. Off-campus access needs to be routed through a sign-in process with Butler University credentials, however, so please do use specially formatted library links from this site or our LibGuides when trying to access research resources from off-campus.
We maintain an alphabetical list of subject-specific (MLA Bibliography) or multidisciplinary databases (JSTOR), as well as larger publisher-centered collections (Elsevier's ScienceDirect). This alphabetical list of major online resources does not contain all individual online journals accessible through our subscriptions; these should be accessed through our Journals A-Z lookup.
Databases by Subject
Don't know where to get started with online searching? Our databases listing is available both in an alphabetical list as well as by subject areas based on departments at Butler - start with the department your class is in if you're not sure which database to use.
If you're chasing down a citation, or just want to check if Butler has access to a specific journal/magazine title, use Journals A-Z. This lookup tool tracks journal titles across subject databases, individual online subscriptions, and issues in print at the Libraries.
