It is always a good idea to search for articles on a given topic by searching a database. In our library we have several available.
Start with Academic Search Complete.
Click on the Choose Databases link located on top of the search box.
You can select a wide variety of relevant databases such as:
Cochrane Database fo Systematic Reviews
Communication & Mass Media Complete
eBook Collection (EBSCOhost)
Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition
Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection
Once you have selected these databases, you will be searching all of them at the same time!
SpeechBITE an open source database of scholarly research
Google Scholar is a great place to search but we do not have access to all of the articles there.
For articles that are not available on Google Scholar, go to the library home page at library.lamar.edu
and click the Journals tab for journals we may have access to, or click the Library Catalog tab for the books.
If the items are not available, feel free to use Interlibrary Loan to get copies emailed to you!
There is no charge for ILL and you could receive the articles in your email within 1 to 3 days.
If you are not sure about getting access to something, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
