Where to Start Your Information Search?

Where to start?  

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 a records on what resources you have searched, and search strategies you have executed. Use RefWorks (see Research tab) to manage your research.

Navigation Tools

Users are urged to take advantage of the library web site’s powerful search and navigation tools:

Journal Locator+ links to over 10,000 licensed electronic journals. You can search by keyword, title, subject, publisher, or collection.
