Find Articles in Databases

Databases are the best way to find quality articles. These three education databases are a good starting point to find articles about teaching foreign languages or ESL. We subscribe to databases on almost every topic.  

  • With the first database you can limit your results to peer -reviewed publications. 
  • The list of articles will show if each article is available in full text in either HTML or PDF format. 
  • Don't forget to click on the Find It icon.  Find It shows if the journal is available in the AU library, may provide a link to full text of the article in a different database, and will provide assistance in reformatting the citation APA or MLA style.
