Database Search Tips

Search tips for finding journal articles


  • Type the keyword (title, author, subject, etc.) of interest in the database's search box and click on the search button
  • Limit the search results to English. Be aware that non-English sources often abstracts written in English.
  • If you have other search limits (additional keywords, date ranges, etc.), apply them to your search results.
  • Review the title, abstract, and keywords of each result.
  • Select only articles you think will be of great use.
  • If you need to access the full text of a journal article that is not immediately in the database, search the title of the journal (not the title of the journal article) in Journal Finder. The Journal Finder lists all the full text journals made available by the Logan Library.
  • If you need access to the full text of a journal article that is not in Journal Finder, submit an Interlibrary Loan request.
