Where to Start Your Search for Information?
Where to start? Using Google? You are missing out on links to PCOM-licensed full text. Relying on Wikipedia? Quick, easy, but not acceptable in the academic environment.
OneSearch+ is the best place to start any search. It is a simple, google-like search of many of our licensed peer-reviewed electronic and print content.
Limit to Full Text and to a defined date range. Options include content provider (i.e., PsycINFO, Academic Search), source type (books, reviews), key authors, top resources, and even NAICS industry classification code.
View Major Subjects to select subject headings from controlled vocabularies used in many major databases such as PsycINFO and MEDLINE. Also view Subjects for more options. Using subject headings is the most effective way to target your search.
Always remember that searching is an iterative process. Keep accurate records on what resources you have searched, and what search strategies you have executed. Use RefWorks (see Research tab) to manage your research.
