The library is proud to offer a wide range of research tools for you, but it can be hard to know where to begin! Here are our recommendations:

  • Start with the library's Everything search boxIt searches most of our databases at once. A one-stop shop for full text articles, books and more.
  • Find your research strategies guide. Librarians have created guides for each area of study at APUS, to show you how to get started with the most important research tools.
  • A complete list of the library's databases is on the library's Articles & Databases page. Look under Databases by Subject to find the databases that are most relevant to your studies.
