Answer

The library provides an alphabetical (A - Z) listing of the electronic databases that we subscribe to (http://libraryguides.etown.edu/content.php?pid=649464&sid=5379009).  This listing also provides information on the recommended research discipline/subject category for each database.  You can also view databases arranged by subject (http://libraryguides.etown.edu/content.php?pid=649464&sid=5379037), simply select the tab "Databases by Subject."  Choose the database that best suits your research topic.  Some databases overlap.  It may be advantageous to conduct searches in several databases.
