English 105 -- LOL! Writing and Laughter (Lusthaus): Articles

News Databases

General / Multi-subject Databases

The databases on this page will help you identify scholarly, popular, and news articles, as well as other research, on topics for this class.

Finding the full text of an article  

If the article citations you find do not include full text, click on Find it @ NU which searches across many other databases to find electronic full text of the article, if it exists, in the NU Library electronic environment. Find it @ NU will also lead to NUcat, the online catalog, if only a paper copy exists for the journal or periodical. If an item is not found in electronic or paper copy, a link to Interlibrary Loan will be given.

You can also locate the full article by directly searching on the journal title, not the article title, in NUcat. You can then check to see whether the library owns the journal or periodical and if so, what issues/dates are owned and in what format (hard copy, electronic, microtext).

To find these and other databases to which Northwestern University Library subscribes, you can also go to the library homepage and choose Electronic Resources.
