About Research Databases

Databases are gateways to information! Holy Family suscribes to a number of databases that collect, organize, and make accessible legititmate, scholarly, academic, and consumer-oriented journals, magazines, books, and other publications that support your research. Our databases generally fall into two categories:

  • Multi-disciplinary databases
  • Subject-specific databases

Open the Research Databases page to see the entire list.  Please read each database's description to determine if it is appropriate for your research. Each database has a "Help" section with instructions and search tips. 

Research databases are accessible only to Holy Family students, faculty, and staff (their content is not available on the open web).
