Academic Search Premier - One of the library's largest article databases. This is an example of a search for "Phineas Gage."
In most databases, searching in quotes will look for an exact phrase instead of individual keywords. For example, in this case, using the quotes ensures we don't get everything about people named Phineas and everyone with the last name Gage.
ProQuest Research Library - Our other large database. Here, our "Phineas Gage" search turns up even more articles. If you want to narrow it down a little bit, try limiting the search with the options on the left.
