Academic Search Engines

Proprietary Indexes
Available through Missouri State - you either must be on campus to use these indexes or using the Missouri State dial-in modems if off campus.

EBSCOHost - this source has quite a few journal articles on-line, including the full text and tables.
First Search
an excellent source for journal article searches. The Missouri State library does not currently subscribe to ECONLIT under First Search, an economic literature database. However, I have requested that they consider subscribing. First Search still is a useful search engine.
InfoShare - this site is more useful for education majors and sociologists but may be occassionaly useful.
IAC SearchBank - this site, similar to EBSCOHost, has journal articles on-line, including the full text and tables. Articles can be printed from the browser, downloaded or e-mailed to you.
Lexis-Nexis - LEXIS®-NEXIS® Academic Universe provides access to a wide range of news, business, legal, and reference information.
Gale Research - Databases about authors, science, and history. Extensive biographical and literary criticism about authors who write in different areas.
