  Find Articles & Databases

Journal articles are a good source for current information on a specific topic. Printed or electronic indexes and databases are used to find articles. They are usually arranged by subject, author or keyword.

Marymount subscribes to over 80 general and specialized indexes and databases, which provide access to hundreds of electronic journals, magazines, and newspapers.

ALADIN Databases:

ALADIN Databases: use this link to access MU's licensed databases; databases are grouped by subjects; searching by the database name is also available.

If you're not sure which subject category to choose, use the "Articles on general topics" link on the ALADIN home page. 

Text-only access to the databases is available for use with screen readers or non-compatible browsers.

Remember that licensed databases are restricted to MU students, faculty, and staff. You will need to authenticate for off-campus access.
