Access Article Databases

For EWU article databases...

All of our databases may be accessed from any computer connected to the Internet, with your NetID username and password. (This username/password is the same one that you used to initially set up your EWU email account.) Your username is the first letter of your first name, your last name, and the last 2 digits of your EWU ID number.

If you have not created your password, go to accounts.ewu.edu. See NetID Account for more information. For questions about your EWU ID number, contact IT Help Desk.

Starting your research? Try these databases first!

These article databases are good places to begin your research, or when you just need some articles on your topic.

Within a Database

When you are searching in one of the library databases and the article in question isn't available full text right there, look for this icon Check for Full Text iconor a hyperlink that says EWU - Check for Full Text.

Clicking the Check for Full Text button in the databases brings up a screen like this...

 Check for Full Text screen

If the article is available online, it will say Full text available at:[link to database]. In the example above the article is available in Sage Premier.

If the article is not available full text, it will say "No full text available." Click the Find in a Library tab to see if we have it in print or microfilm. The page will look like the image below. Note:

  • the years we have -- for the example below "Latest 5 years only"
  • the location -- JFK Main Level Periodical
  • the call number of the journal -- PC4001 .H7

Find in a Library tab screen

If we do not have it online, nor in print/microfilm, then you may request it via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Use the link on either the View Online tab or the Find in a Library tab.
