BUILD A DATABASE SEARCH

Advanced Search for best results!  Like this:

Box 1  You may want to begin by searching a broad topic.

Then browse results to find one or more relevant articles that interest you. What terms does the database use to describe these articles in their subjects or abstracts? What are related words? You may want to modify your search as you find better or different terms.


AND Box 2   Focus your search using a second box with additional keywords. You may string similar words together in the box using OR between the words. Also, refine using limiters in the left-side menu – date, scholarly/peer-reviewed journals, subject and others.


AND Box 3  You may want to narrow further. One way to search multiple terms at once is by using the *. Child* will find articles including child, and also words that begin with child, like children or childhood.

Background and Data Web Sources

You may Google to try to find supporting statistics, but Google only searches the first level or two of websites and your statistic may be deeper. These are reliable websites to search for the info you need. If not, ask a librarian for help!

Find It and Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

In your list of database search results, some citations will not include the full text of the article.

When that happens, in most Dalton State databases you will see a tool called Find It icon to help you access the full text of articles.

The Find It icon button will link you to the articles if they are available in other DSC library databases.

If that doesn't help, look to see if there is an icon indicating. This is an icon meaning the article can be found free, on the web.
