Introduction to online library searching
  • The slides take you through some of the basic
    ways of searching the Librarys electronic
    information resources.

    resources but that does not mean they are any
    less important

Use the Electronic Journals A-Z to find a
specific electronic journal.If you are using a
computer outside the University, make sure you
find the Athens login link(s) click on it
(them). Otherwise you will not be able to see a
full journal article we have access to.

You can usually search by keyword within a
particular journal
14
Or view a particular article from an issue of the
journal
15
Searching for articles on a topic
  • There are several databases which you can use to
    find some journal articles on a topic
  • The following slides show you
  • EBSCO Electronic Journals Service
  • PsycARTICLES
  • Elsevier Science Direct

16
EBSCO Electronic Journals Service allows you
search across a range of journals we subscribe to
from different publishers.Its not
sophisticated, you just type in a few key words
it doesnt find all we have but its very useful
easy to use

PsycARTICLES is a database containing the
complete articles of the journals of the American
Psychological Association (APA) others. Many
are not covered in EBSCO EJS so it is another
very useful place to search.No Athens login
link for this one (at the time of writing)

Science Direct is the database of Elsevier, one
of the worlds largest journals publishers.
Though many of the journals are contained in
EBSCO EJS, the latter does not go as far back in
time as Science Direct.The first time you use
it, you need to register your details with
Science Direct.

For later .Other databases widen your search by
indexing which journal articles have been
published. The Library will have subscriptions to
some of the journal articles but not others.
  • e.g.
  • Web of Science
  • PsycINFO
  • Google Scholar

34
PsycARTICLES Web of Science are both available
from the Information Resources page
35
PsycARTICLES Web of Science are sophisticated
indexes to journal articles may be searched in
a variety of ways.This does mean, however, that
they are sometimes not so easy to use.Remember
that they are worldwide INDEXES to journals we
will only have access to a limited number of
articles.For these reasons you may first wish
to try the searches outlined previously.
36
Electronic Books
  • We have a growing number of e-books but not all
    books we would like are available for Libraries
    to buy
  • The next slides take you briefly though accessing
    electronic books how to see them but bear in
    mind that they have a lot of features so this
    barely skims the surface
  • We have to use different e-book suppliers which
    work slightly differently to each other

37
You can see a brief title listing of e-books with
links from the Resources by Subject Library page
for Psychology

At present for Dawsonera e-books, you are taken
to the Dawsonera home page then have to look
for the e-book within the database e.g. type in
the authors surname.Hopefully this should be
rectified soon by Dawsonera.
