Find the Right Research Guides

Created by Simon Lee, Renee Romero

Google is great, but for your research project, you're likely going to need more than even Google can provide. UCLA Library's research guides can help you find the best databases and search tools for your topic, and help you more quickly find the information you need.

Give it a try:

Visit to find one or more research guides related to your topic or course. Then, visit the "articles" tab on the guides and choose the databases you would like to use to explore your topic.


  • Consider using more than one research guide to help you find interdisciplinary perspectives on your topic.
