Find academic journal magazine and newspaper articles using Academic Search Complete

One of the best tools you have for finding journal, magazine and newspaper articles- for First Seminar or nearly any other class you take here at CWRU- is the database Academic Search Complete (ASC).  Once you get a feeling for using ASC, you'll be comfortable using other databases.

When you need to find articles rather than just books on a topic, ASC is a great place to start.  This might be when the topic is quite current and no books have been written about it, and where most of the material on the topic comes from newspapers, magazines and journals.  Another very nice aspect of this database is that a large percentage of the articles are directly available in full text..

The screen shot below is what the ASC database looks like.  Click the link below it to start using ASC.  

Remember to use the CaseWireless network on campus.  If off campus, you can use VPN with the DUO app, or OpenAthens authentication (explained in the box on the left).
