These databases are included in the Library Catalog "Everything" search, but by using the individual databases you will get more powerful search options and can also opt to search just within literature-related databases.
To find scholarly journal articles only, be sure to check a box titled "refereed", "scholarly" or "peer reviewed" journals.
