In addition to the individual databases, you can also try searching using our Discover search (which you can find below). Discovery recently got a new interface, but it is a powerful tool since it searches multiple databases all at once.

In this regard, make sure to use the "Advanced Search," multiple keywords, and the side-bar filters to narrow down you results.
If you have questions you can always email me or click on Ask a Librarian for the library's contact information.
