Human Services professionals help people of all ages and backgrounds live safe and healthy lives.

Article Databases

Databases are a great place to search for individual articles from newspapers, magazines, and academic journals. 

While many news and magazine articles may also be found with an internet search engine, our subscription databases can provide you with access to older articles that are not available online and other pay-per-view materials, plus additional options to refine your search. As far as scholarly articles go, databases should be your first stop! Most scholarly literature is not freely available.  

Get started quickly with the search bar below, or check out some of our subject-specific recommendations. Be sure you log in to TouroOne before accessing the databases.

Many federal & local governments, as well as
onprofit groups, provide data and resources
related to human services.

To limit your Google search to only government
websites, add [site:gov] to your search.
For organization websites, add [site:org].

You can also use the site: prefix to limit your search
to any other top-level domain (.com, etc.) or individual website (e.g. oasas.ny.gov).
