Core Research Databases

Start with these essential databases. These are high-quality, subscription-only databases provided by the University Libraries. If you are using them off-campus, you may need to authenticate with your BGSU username and password.

LAPTOC: Latin American Periodicals Tables of Contents

LAPTOC is a searchable Web database that provides access to the tables of contents of more than 950 journals, primarily in the humanities and social sciences, published in Latin America. The  participating libraries of the Latin Americanist Research Resources Project have accepted institutional collecting responsibilities for the journals included in the database. The libraries agree to acquire each issue of the assigned journal, to enter the tables of contents into the database, and to provide document delivery from the titles for which they maintain institutional responsibility. The database currently contains citations for over 325,000 articles.

Most of the titles included in this database are not available at the BGSU Libraries.  You will have to submit a request via Interlibrary Loan (ILL), BGSU's interlibrary loan service in order to get an article.  Do not use the ILL link inside LAPTOC to request an item.  You will have to logon to Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and type in the information.

Databases of Full-Text Journals

Depending on your topic, you may want to search these other databases.  Be careful with JSTOR and Project Muse--both are databases of full-text journals.  When you conduct a keyword search in them, you will search every word in every single journal article in the databases. You may retrieve many irrelevant items. Read the search tips in each for suggestions on ways to search efficiently.
