You might be familiar with a database called Academic Search Ultimate from other classes, but there are a few specialized databases I recommend for finding scholarly articles in HDFS 3130. PsycINFO is a great place to start for most research topics in HDFS because of its powerful filters.
Need the PDF/full-text?
Use Article Linker to search for full-text across all databases. If the article isn't available, choose Request via ILLiad or use interlibrary services to request a copy from another library. You can also download the Lean Library extension to get full-text materials off campus when available.
PsycINFO might not give you the whole picture when it comes to investigating your topic. Consider searching one or more of these additional databases to expand your search.
Using Google Scholar?
Sync your Google account with USU. This will get you past paywalls for articles USU subscribes to by having you login with your A# and password.
Need strategies for reading academic journal articles?
Use this reading guide from the library to help you understand the major sections of academic articles and develop strategies for quickly understanding them. Or check out the handout linked below for more details.
