Franklin Articles+, a component of Franklin, is a single search entry point into the Penn Libraries' large collection of ebooks, scholarly journals, newspaper articles, conference proceedings, and more. Articles+ is prominently located on the Penn Libraries homepage and there are links on various research guides.
Articles+ allows you to search for full-text content: books, book chapters, journal articles, newspaper articles, government publications, manuscripts, book reviews, conference proceedings, sound recordings, reference works, dissertations, from one search database. Articles+ links to full-text content subscribed to by Penn, open-access material, and content from ScholarlyCommons, University of Pennsylvania's institutional repository.
When searching Articles+, you will encounter content in either abstract or full-text from many publishers and providers such as ProQuest, EBSCO, JSTOR, Wiley, Gale, LexisNexis, Sage, Springer, Taylor & Francis, IEEE, Project Muse and much more. Within Articles+, multiple records from different sources for the same item are merged into one composite record.
While FA+ contains content from many of the Libraries' databases, there is some information that is not included in Articles+. For print works, be sure to consult the Franklin Catalog. Specialized or comprehensive research should also include the Libraries' subject databases. For information about which databases are best for your subject area, contact a Subject Librarian.
