Search specialized databases to uncover scholarly information in your specific subject area.
Specialized databases are particularly helpful if you require a specific format or up-to-date, scholarly information on a specific topic.
Search these core Geology, Geography, and Earth Science indexes and databases to identify relevant journal articles, book chapters, book reviews, essays, dissertations, and more.
In some databases full text will follow the citation. In most instances for accessing full text you will have to look for icons that may look like this:
If you don't see those icons or links don't work, look for the ArticleLinker button or "Find Full Text at UC" link. The button or link will take you to the tool that searches for full text articles in library database. Learn how this tool works and how to make the most of it: ArticleLinker FAQ.
If the article is not available online ArticleLinker will suggest searching the library catalog for a print version or ordering the article via ILLiad (interlibrary loan):
When requesting items not available at UC, click the appropriate Interlibrary Loan form and login to your account with your UC Central Login username and password. If you have not used ILLiad before, you will be asked to fill out a profile. For a seamless experience, do this first. Once you are logged in, the article request form will be automatically populated with the article bibliographic information.
Not at UC? Request it via the online request system ILLiad.
Log in with your UC central login. First time users will be prompted to fill out a profile which will then automatically supply your information for any subsequent requests.
