EDUC 1300 - Professor Conklin: Articles

Use the Online Databases to Search for Articles

EPCC Library Online Databases



Use the EPCC online databases to search for articles found in magazines, journals and newspapers. Many databases even carry video, images, interviews, ebooks and primary sources. Each database is unique so try to familiarize yourself with it before you begin. Use the help or tutorials found in each database page for assistance.  


Here are a couple of Hints

·     Use the advance search

·     Type in simple keywords like "Critical Thinking" or "College Success AND students"

·     Make sure to click on full text (if not you will retrieve abstract articles alongside with full text)

·     If you are looking for journals only, click on the box that states "journals only," sometimes it might say "scholarly (peer reviewed) journals"

                      *If you are off campus and wish to access the online databases, click on the Off-campus access link.*
