Choosing Online Resources

Today, you can search nearly every library catalog from your home or office. Citavi can access the online catalogs of many larger public and university libraries as well as special and research libraries. You can save your search results directly in Citavi and then use them to locate items you want to use.

Almost every academic discipline has its own database compiled by experts in the field. These databases are gold mines of information. For example, PubMed is one of the most significant research databases for biomedical literature, while ERIC is one of the most important in the field of education.


Your library's website generally contains a section that tells you which research databases the library subscribes to. Often these databases will be grouped by academic discipline. Ask your library's subject specialists for information regarding the best databases for your topic.
