Top Article Databases

One of the most efficient ways to locate articles on topics is to use the Library's subscription databases.  When connecting to these resources from off-campus, you must enter your FGCU ID (14-digit number) before you are allowed access.  More than 400 databases are available to FGCU affiliates from the Databases page.

Locating Journals

To see if a journal is available in print in the Library's collection, use the Library Catalog and select Journal Title to focus your search results.  Results will display both online, print and microfilm journal titles.

To determine if a particular journal issue is available online, see the Journals page.

For help in locating peer reviewed journals, see the following:

Be sure to click on Scholar Preferences and save Florida Gulf Coast University to your preferences.  You will then see if items in the result listing are available at FGCU.
