German Studies


Find Articles

This Guide is meant to help identify materials for basic and advanced research in German studies; a special emphasis is placed on resources for studying German literature.

Indexes and Databases

Each of the first two resources have a more specific scope, language and literature in the first and history in the second.  The resources which follow them are more interdisciplinary.

Where's the Article?

If you search a database and the full article's not there, don't despair.  Look for the "FindIt" button:  or FindIt@BC.  Find It will offer help including:

  1. If BC has the full text in another database, you will be taken to a list of databases for the full text. 
  2. If BC subscribes to the print journal where the article appeared, the Catalog will say Find in Library and you can check which library or libraries may have the year/issue you need and where it is located.
  3. If the article is not available online or in print at BC, use the link to Request the item. We can usually get the article from another library within a few days and email it to you.
