E-encyclopedias

Both of these resources are a good way to get started...

Encyclopedias

Good Library Search

Search for an item at Good Library:

 

Option: Advanced Search

  • This search will get you both books and articles found in the library. 
  • Use the facets (on the left side of the page) to limit your results like you want.  It is common to limit by "article" and "full text".
  • You can ILL articles as well!  We will email you the article.

EBSCO databases

  • You may find the EBSCO interface yields more specific results
  • With EBSCO, you can choose which databases you want to search.  For your class, I would suggest the following...
    • Academic Search Premier
    • Communication & Mass Media Complete (for some topics)
    • ERIC (for some topics)
    • Health Source - Consumer Edition (for some topics)
    • PsycARTICLES (for all of your topics)
    • PsycINFO (for all of your topics)
    • Social Sciences Full Text - H.W.Wilson (for all of your topics)
    • SocINDEX with Full Text (for all of your topics)
  • Pay attention to the facets on the side.  You can use them to change your results quickly.
  • You can InterLibrary Loan articles as well if we do not have the full text.  The article will usually come in a day or two.
