Don't overlook one of your best resources - your Gallucci-Cirio Librarians! Need help getting started, developing your search strategy, focusing your topic and selecting "keywords", deciding what type of resources you need as well as how to use them, or struggling with citations? Use our appointment scheduler below to meet with Asher or Linda:
There are a large number of databases available, each one different from another in a variety of ways. They may have very different search features and options. Some databases are subject specific while others cover a more general, broad-based range of subject areas. They may provide full online access to some or all of the items (article, book, video, etc.), or they may provide only an abstract or partial clip, or just list the item's citation information.
A good place to start your research is in a general, broad database such as:
Sometimes you find a great article, but it's not available online in the database that you are searching in. When this happens you should see a "Get Article", "Find Article" or "Find Copy" link instead. Click on this link to see if it's available in one of our other databases or in our print collection.
Once you begin finding articles that you want to use, refer to the References section at the end of each article for additional resources you might also want to find. You can see if we have access to these articles through the Articles search tab on the Library's home page or using the Journal Finder tool link below.
