Sometimes the key to finding the best articles is to first find the best search terms. Some databases (especially EBSCO and GALE) make it easy to find the right words for your search. Look in the toolbar for an option called "Subject Terms," "Thesaurus," "Subject Guide," or similar.
What if you're looking for a specific article? Maybe your professor has recommended it, or you found a citation in a book or journal. What should you do?
Choose to search within the publication, and use words from the title of the article to narrow your search.
Try the Journal search feature in WorldCat. Type the title of the journal or magazine you need in the search box. Results will show the databases that provide access to that journal. Note: even though the journal is available, it might not be available for the date or issue you need, and access to the article may not be available in full text. But this search feature will give you a place to start.
As always, if you need assistance finding a specific article, your friendly DBU librarians are always willing to help.
