Hi everybody. As you start looking for sources for your projects, you’ll want to use at least two of the library’s resources.
The first is the library’s Electronic Databases, which are specialized search engines designed to help you find scholarly publications in various fields. Three databases will be especially helpful for your projects: The MLA International Bibliography (which will help you find articles about literature), PsychInfo (which will help you find articles about psychology), and EBSCO (a general database that encompasses many fields of study).
The second is the library’s collection of Electronic Journals. Project MUSE and JSTOR will be especially helpful, but you might also find PsycArticles and Psychology Collection useful.
Of course, you should also use the library’s online catalog to search for books. Don’t be afraid to go to the actual library and check out books that may help you with your topic!
We’ll discuss all this in class, but it’s a good idea to get started early and try some searching on your own.
