Scholarly journals.

Technically, we don’t have any. Every so often somebody comes looking for scholarly articles on a certain topic. Well, we have magazines: People and Good Housekeeping and Hype Hair. But that’s not what’s meant by scholarly.

Usually, the people in search of a scholarly article are writing a term paper or a dissertation. In that case they need an article written by an expert in the field and that usually means someone with a Ph.D. 

By now you may be wondering how we manage to help these people.

This is where the technicality comes in. We don’t have the Journal of Clinical Neonatology or the Journal of Business Ethics, but we know where to find them.

Introducing the TexShare Databases!!

This is where to go for those scholarly articles.

All it takes is a library card. Just ask a staff member for the password; we’re not allowed to publish it anywhere.

Here’s how to get started.

Go to our Online Resources page and scroll down to the TexShare databases link. Choose a database to search and you’re on your way. From there you’ll be able to narrow down your search by subject.

*Pro tip – look for an option that says, “full text document.”

TexShare databases can be confusing (there’s a LOT of information available) so make sure you have plenty of time to get the hang of using this resource.


As always, catch us on social media or comment below. If you have a library question, call 972-780-5052 or email librarians@duncanville.com.
