There is access to over 400 online services for anyone on a Kent State campus (and to off-campus authorized users). If you have trouble finding a specific article you can try using Journal Finder or search for the journal title in KentLINK to find an electronic version. Although some of the most popular databases are listed on this page and on the library's Subject-Specific resources pages, you can find a complete list of available databases using the library's A-Z list of databases. If you still cannot find the article, you can request an InterLibrary Loan (please remember to use the Stark Campus as Your Campus if that is where you want the item delivered).
Subject Databases are excellent to use in addition to the above databases for your speech assignments.
