Linguistics Research at the UT Libraries


Want to look for articles and books on a topic?   Here is a handy tool to help you generate search terms. 

Begin with  LLBA (Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts) and check for additional sources in the databases supporting Anthropology, Education, Literature, etc depending on your topic.  To cover a mass of peer-reviewed journals, conferences and book citations in multiple disciplines, try Web of Science  

Follow links to the articles from citations, locate the print if applicable,and request unowned items via Interlibrary Loan.

Follow these discovery paths to locate a known work: 

  • Search for the title of the book in which a target chapter appears 
  • Search for the JOURNAL TITLE of a target article and navigate to the needed year, volume and issue 
  • Another option is to search for a combination of subject, title, author and/or keywords
  • Libraries Search help
