Finding articles within databases and journals is not the same process you would use to conduct a search in Google or an internet search engine. You cannot type in a question, but rather need to choose specific keywords and phrases to find results. These tips are similar to how you would search for material in DELCAT Discovery.
Helpful Ways to Search:
Use the Advanced Search option in databases and journals to narrow down by date, region, type of document, and more!
In the search box below, use terms related to your global issue to search for ebooks. Scan a book's table of contents to identify chapters that could be of interest. Note that you can also use the full version of DELCAT Discovery on the library homepage to find a variety of sources (articles, streaming video, ebooks, print books, and more).
Use the following databases to find scholarly journal articles related to your topic. Begin by choosing a database related to your global issue, then search using keywords you've identified in your background research.
