How to Use Find Journals By Title
Finding Journals by Title can be used to find electronic and print versions of specific journal titles. It can also be used to search by "keyword." Using the pull down menu type your subject keyword until the menu choice "Title contains all words" This will show all journals that contain that keyword in their title! Another great way to search.
What are Databases?
"Database" is a quick way to describe any online application where you enter a search. There are databases for books (URSUS, MaineCat, World Cat) and databases for Journal articles. I've picked out some to the right ---> There are many other databases as well. Google is a search engine but it is also a database of websites.It is important to know what you are looking for Books? Articles? Websites? etc. before you start looking! Ask me I can help!!
