Others are available in the library or within a few weeks through “interlibrary loan”. The following subjects and databases are simply a sample of what is available.
The general EBSCOhost search box at the top of the library page is good for getting started with broad topics, for example,
Academic Search Complete is great for more targeted subject searching, for example, "earthquakes in literature"

JSTOR provides access to older academic journal articles, which can provide interesting perspectives. Try searches such as "storytelling and India"
For additional perspectives, explore subject related databases. Try the links below search or choose from a complete list of databases.
For books, DVDs, videos, or government documents on related subjects, use the search box at the top of the page to search the library’s catalog or WorldCat (for items available within a few weeks through “interlibrary loan”).
