  • We need to know this:(1) Use databases to find peer reviewed articles (2) Request full text articles from abstracts and have them delivered to your email(3) Find books using the online catalog and request delivery to Regents Center Library (4) Use Web 2.0 effectively for class assignments and literature searches (5) Use Google Scholar from the list of library databases (6) Find academic articles using Search Engines
  • Narrow down the number of results by limiting your search. We limited this search by type of material, “Scholarly Journals” and date of publication “2010 – 2014.” I’m going to look at the title, Project management in small to medium sized enterprises published in the journal, Management Decision.
