Useful Tips:

· Look beyond the first 10.  Your results are probably arranged by date, not by relevance.  There may be good stuff a way down the list.

· When you see something good, READ IT—look at the subject terms and abstract.


What if I can’t link to full text?

See a librarian!  It may be in a different database, available in our paper subscriptions, or available from another library.  We can help you navigate those choices.


How do I know which database to try?

The ones on the “Top Five” lists are good places to start.  Be sure to see if the drop-down menus might apply to your topic, and choose a database from there.  Or ask a librarian by phone, email or chat
