Hello! I've put together this guide to library resources that support the study of philosophy. There are several relevant databases, which are found on the Articles and Databases page. Additionally, philosophy is still a monograph-heavy discipline, so searching in Scout for philosophy books and ebooks would be a useful endeavor.

If I can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to me!
