Finding Sources through the Library

You have access to 365 databases through the Wellesley College Library, in addition to our library catalog of books, videos, and more! Many of these databases are focused on scholarly journal articles and books, while others contain newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, videos, primary sources, and more. Some of the content from some of these databases can be searched through SuperSearch, but SuperSearch is not comprehensive. Use the tabs on this guide to find out more about SuperSearch, the databases, and other search tools and strategies.
