Q: Can I search for database articles in Spanish?
A: It’s possible to search for database articles in Spanish. However, the results are much smaller, and not all databases offer searching in languages other than English. Here’s a list of EBSCOHost databases that do:
- Academic Search Premiere
- Education Research Complete
- Library, Information Science, & Technical Abstracts
- The Serials Directory
- eBook Collection (EBSCOhost)
To search in a language other than English look for Limit your results and under Languages select the language you’d like to search in, e.g., Spanish.
It’s also possible to search the databases below in Spanish. You will need to look carefully at settings that allow you to use :
- ProQuest (scroll down to the bottom of the advanced search page for languages)
- Directory of Open Access Journals (look under advanced search)
- Google Scholar (Settings > Languages)
