Database Resources and Searching Tips

Bellarmine University-W. L. Lyons Brown Library
Online Resources

To access the Bellarmine University Library Resources, go directly to the library web page at

At the Brown Library web page, you may access the databases you may need as follows:

Bellarmine Online Catalog: Click Lyonscat Online Catalog or use the drop box search at the top. This is used to find materials that are here in our library---books, DVDs, etc. You may access this from off-campus.

ProQuest: Click ProQuest under Online Databases. Click “Select all databases” and then “Continue.”

EBSCOhost: Click EBSCOhost under Online Databases. Good databases for you to begin with might be Academic Search Premier and Sociological Collection. Look through the other databases to see which ones might relate to your topic.

JSTOR: Click JSTOR under Online Databases.

Suggestions for searching:

*You usually do not need to capitalize titles, authors, etc. Most databases are not case sensitive.

*You should try to use as few words as possible in a search. Use the word “and” to link them together.

DO USE:                 (radio or television or "social network") and (women) and status

DO USE:                 consumerism and ethic*

DO USE:                 hippotherapy and children

The * picks up any variation of that term. For instance, psych* would pick up psychology, psychological, psychologically, psycho, etc.

In ProQuest: Mark “exclude from results”: book reviews and dissertations.


If an article is not full text in the database you’re using, click the Find It? button.

If it’s available in another database, it will take you to that article.

If not, you may then check to see if we subscribe to it (click “by ISSN”).


To find if we have online access to the full text of a particular journal through one of our online databases:
