Philosophy Research Guide

Use this guide to find UNO library resources and other helpful research tools.

Are you off-campus?

When you click to connect to a database, you may be prompted to log-in to your library account to confirm that you are a UNO student and eligible for access.  This is especially true for off-campus computers.  If you have not set up a Criss Library account, you may click here to retrieve instructions.

Library Databases

These six databases provide the best coverage of articles published in research journals in Philosophy:

Several other library databases may also prove of interest depending on specific emphasis; for example,

You may browse a complete list of Criss Library's databases in the Databases A-Z directory.

Finding elusive journal articles

In most cases journal articles will be immediately available online. However, a database may sometimes describe an article but not actually include a copy.  You can search for the title of a journal (not an article title) in the eJournals directory to see if the journal is available in a different database.  The library subscribes to over 200 databases, so it is usually worth checking.

You may also search the title of a journal in the library catalog to see if the library has a physical copy in the Periodicals Collection. The catalog will provide a call number and note the volumes and years owned by the library.

If any particular article is just entirely unavailable, submit an Interlibrary Loan request to obtain a copy from another library.
