Academic Search Premier & Interdisciplinary Investigation

The University Libraries presently has 627 specialized databases devoted to information resource discovery that leads to the ease of sharing of data covering a vast number of academic topics. When it comes to a generalized, yet helpful starting point for each of your respective courses, the Academic Search Premier site powered by EBSCO Host is an excellent place to begin.

According to officials at EBSCO, the Academic Search Premier database is a:

“. . . multi-disciplinary database for academic institutions with peer-reviewed full-text journals across disciplines including computer sciences, engineering, physics, chemistry, language and linguistics, arts & literature, medical sciences, and ethnic studies.”

In terms of size, Academic Search Premiere features over 8,000 full-text periodicals and more than 10,000 abstracts dating from 1887-present. With the large volume of choices available to our research community, we are glad to share specific resources through Academic Search Premier and other databases in our collection. Happy and successful searching!
