  • To begin to look for articles - try  Academic Search Premier 
    Academic Search Premier has articles on a variety of subjects from over 8,200 journals, and over half of them are available full text.


  • To expand your search for articles - try other Online Databases.
    With a specific topic, use the "view by subject" feature at the top of the page to view a customized list. Rolling over database name will give you additional information about each resource.



  • To look for books, scores and more - use WorldCat Discovery.
    Search with 'All Keywords' for a general search, and by 'Title starts with' or 'Exact Author' if you're looking for something specific. (Pay attention to the available limits, including Format and Location.)


  • If you are looking for subject-specific help, begin with our LibGuides.
    LibGuides serve as a starting point for your research. They provide a variety of Guides which can be used for topic ideas, links to specific resources, and general information.


  • To see if Butler has full-text access to an article or journal, use the Citation Linker.
    Enter the citation (from an index or bibliography) or just enter a journal title.


  • If you are looking for something else, Ask A Librarian.
    If you cannot find what you need, contact our Reference Desk via IM, email, or phone. A Butler librarian will respond to your question within one business day.


  • If you need help in person, try visiting Information Commons.
    Information Commons students can help you with in-depth research, search strategies, citation help, and more! Stop by the main desk at Irwin Library or the CAT offices on the third floor.
