Sometimes searching an individual database can improve search results. Check the A-Z list of databases for other specialized databases.
The "Articles" tab in LION One Search searches multiple databases by keyword, title, or author.
An article may have links to HTML Full Text, PDF Full Text, or an ePUB file. A "View record from..." link will open the article in one of our databases. A "Full text Finder" link opens a page showing access to the source journal, which may include the article you want. This link may also indicate the library has a physical copy of the journal on the third floor. The "Journals" tab in LION One Search lets you search journals to which we have access for words in their titles. You can also search Google Scholar; sometimes full text of articles can be found. If the article isn't located, you can request it through Interlibrary loan.
You should examine the Subjects listed for an article to determine if using them will improve search results. They can be added to a search using the Advanced Search page. Advanced Search lets you construct more complex and targeted searches.
Sometimes searching an individual database may be more efficient.
Databases can use different methods to search and sort data. Ust the Help function to learn more about successfully using a database.
If you want to save a link to an article from a database, look for a "permalink", "durable URL", "stable URL", or a similar term and save the URL it lists. A link copied from the browser may not be reliable.
Many databases let you use a citation manager to organize articles you locate. There are several available with a variety of capabilities if you choose to use one.
