Searching Databases

To search a database for articles, start by typing your keywords into the blank fields at the top of the page. On the left side of your screen, check the FULL-TEXT box. Evaluate your search results by looking at the subject headings under the title of each article to determine if it is relevant to your research question. Read the abstract (short summary) of the article to see if it interests you. You will find the abstract by scrolling over the magnifying glass on the right side of your screen. Click on the title to read the entire article. You can email it to yourself.
