Community Psychology: Find Articles about Your Social Issue

Search tips

Instead of typing a phrase (marijuana use in young adults), use AND to make your results list more precise (e.g.marijuana AND use AND young adults).  Remember you are matching words in the title or abstract, not concepts.

Use OR in your search to add more to your results list. (e.g. unemployed OR underemployed)

To manage the Results List from your search, use the Limit options for that database.

  • e.g. Search within the Results
  • e.g. Select Scholary/Peer review
  • e.g. Adjust date limits

If you already have a citation and need to find the complete article, use the library Catalog

Login: If you are prompted to login to see an article, video, image or  ebook, use your campus/Blackboard username (for example,  janderson) and password.  Questions? Contact the library.

Note: If you choose to use the library Catalog for your initial searching, Remember to sign in using your campus/Blackboard username and password.
