Articles+ relies on the subject terms used by providers that contribute records to the database. This means that i there are Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH), Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) terms, along with terms from other sources. The subject terms from the providers are merged into a single record that displays in Articles+.


Articles+ contains records for materials in over 50 languages. After performing a search, you can limit results to one or more languages represented in the results set.
