A good place to start a topic search is in the search box on the library home page. A keyword or phrase input there searches in the library's main collections of EBSCO, OVID, ProQuest, BMJ, and Science Direct and other large databases. CINAHL is great for nursing related topics, but it is not the best choice for this topic.

  • Click the Articles tab to start.  This search box is set to limit results to peer-reviewed journals, full text, and a recent date range.
  • Be sure to check the limiters/filters with each search.You'll find filters on the left column.  
  • Follow the Full Text Finder on the left link if the PDF icon is not available.
