I find this guide
These are a few databases to get you started searching for information. These have both scholarly (academic or peer-reviewed) and news sources. For more suggestions, see our complete list of ADES-related databases.
If you're not on campus, you'll be asked to log in before connecting to the database.
Some databases link to full articles, but you might need to open the Full Text Journals List and search for the journal title.
If an article is not in our library or online, order it through Inter-Library Loans. It's free, but usually takes a week or two.
Applied Disaster and Emergency Studies draws on research from a number of disciplines, so you may need to search more than one database to meet your information needs.
