These tutorials will guide you in using the Trojan Research Gateway and the EBSCOHost databases.  The major EBSCO database you will use to find general articles is called Academic Search Complete.  Academic Search Complete is very similar to InfoTrac, which is another general periodical database you may have used in high school.  Once you learn how to use Academic Search Complete, you can apply that knowledge to any EBSCOHost database.
