You can explore the 100+ other databases as you need them.
ProQuest Central is a database that searches articles from newspapers, magazines, and journals from a variety of topics.
On the library homepage, click the link to "Databases." Be careful that you do not confuse it with "Articles & More" or "Journals," which will take you to different locations. Click the letter that begins your preferred database, and then find that database on the list.
Use the limiting options on the search results page to limit by source type, date range, language, and more.
Use different search boxes to separate keywords with AND. Use quotes to keep two words in a phrase together, like with "music therapy." Use parentheses and OR to search multiple synonyms at once. Use NOT when you don't want a word to appear (be careful with that one).
Grab a citation, create a free account and save articles in folders, and order articles for free through Interlibrary Loan, all with the buttons you see on the article record pages. Explore and have fun!
IS 101 covers the basic foundations of research. As you progress through your studies, you'll find yourself needing more advanced searching strategies. The LibHacks guide showcases a few of these.
