Research Tips

When searching the databases for information, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Click on Full-Text to retrieve articles that can be read immediately
  • Click on Peer reviewed to view articles from scholarly journals
  • Enter in keywords rather than full sentences
  • Use quotation marks when searching a phrase (2+ words). For example, "black history", "african americans", "martin luther king". Use lower case since it will search both lower and upper case words.
