Send the title and Author to jhelmke@dbq.edu and I can purchase it for you.  

Tips

  • Keep track of your results.  Print, save, or email in APA format!
  • Use keyword searching (not natural language)
  • Use subject terms to narrow
  • Use abstracts to determine relevance
  • What if full-text isn’t there?  Use the "Find It " Button to locate the article in another database, have the library scan a copy for you (E-Delivery), etc. 
  • Can usually limit by: full-text, type of source (magazine, newspaper, academic/scholarly journal), date, etc.
