I. Using OneSearch to Find Articles and eBooks for Your Course Assignments

II. Using Individual Databases to Find Articles for Your Course Assignments

As you have seen above, OneSearch allows you to search across many of the library resources in one place, but there are times when searching an individual database, especially a subject-specific database might be more effective, giving you not as many hits as OneSearch, but more relevant articles. In addition, the search Interface might be more user friendly...Try a few of the following databases to find peer-reviewed articles on topics this course focuses on. Do not forget that these databases can also generate APA and MLA citations for you, a big time-saver.  Databases 1-4 below are all from database provider EBSCOhost, with similar interface. So if you learned the basics of searching in one (take the Medline or Business Source tutorials linked below), you will be able to search in others.
