Many of your topics are multi-disciplinary; therefore, the databases you will be using are listed under multiple subjects.  To locate and identify the databases that are appropriate to use, from the main USF Libraies webpage go to Databases by Subject and select the appropriate subject (s).  For instance, if the topic you are researching is a subject within the field of education you will want to search in the music databases as well as the education databases.  ERIC is one of the major Education databases.  Here is a brief listing of a few BEST BETS databases to use based on subject:
