Search Belk Library's online system to find both library materials and articles in our databases. Use the search box below to do a basic search on library materials and databases.
All of these databases let you search in English, but allow you to limit your results to just Spanish articles.
These databases are just in Spanish. Remember to use Spanish search terms! So not "education" but "educacion".
