  • {"5":"We are going to look at JSTOR which is a database that most Quinnipiac students use for their research. It includes only scholarly journals and is recognized by the faculty as a quality resource. Students use JSTOR when looking for journal articles for most courses. Here we clicked the link to All Databases, scrolled down, and will click the JSTOR link. \n","11":"Here’s something you’ll need to know when searching many of our databases. At Quinnipiac if the full text of an article is unavailable in one particular database, the usual graphic that you see is this QU check for full text:\n","6":"We chose to use the new “Test drive” search since it is very good and will be the default option soon. \n","12":"Here’s an example from OneSearch.\nClick on this graphic and in most cases the full text of the article will be available in a different database. You may in some cases need to click on the PDF link.\n","1":"Now we will use a database to get to an article. Even though you can search for articles in OneSearch, you may want to be more specific at the beginning of your search. Sometimes your professor will recommend a particular database for an assignment, or you will want to start in a database because of its subject focus or suitability to your assignment.\n","7":"The example search was <“Mary Shelley” and Frankenstein>. You may have read this novel before coming to Quinnipiac but remember for future assignments that JSTOR is a great database to look for “Research Articles” or criticism about this or any literary work. For that matter, it will have research articles on just about any topic in most disciplines.\nPlease note in the left margin that the search retrieved 251 research articles published from 2000 to 2013 in English and was limited to content we can access.\n","2":"As we mentioned previously, the Databases link is on the library homepage.\n","8":"Let’s take a look at the first record. The information presented, which is called a citation, is basically the same as we saw in the Library OneSearch examples of articles.\nThe title of the article appears first: Frankenstein and Mary Shelley's "Wet Ungenial Summer" \nThe author’s name follows: Bill Phillips\nThe third line contains the journal information: Atlantis, Vol. 28, No. 2 (Diciembre 2006), pp. 59-68 It is a Spanish publication, therefore it has Diciembre instead of December but the article is in English.\n \n","3":"There are two access points to our databases. We have a list of databases that is arranged by broad subject categories and an alphabetical list of all of the databases.\n","9":"Since the Access was limited to our content every article will be available full text. If the title of the article is clicked, a format called VIEW appears and a benefit is that the search keywords are highlighted in yellow. This version has its drawbacks: it requires clicking an arrow to move from one page to the next, scrolling through the article is not possible. Also, printing is limited to the page that is on the screen.\n","4":"We are going to look at JSTOR which is a database that most Quinnipiac students use for their research. It includes only scholarly journals and is recognized by the faculty as a quality resource. Students use JSTOR when looking for journal articles for most courses. Here we clicked the link to All Databases, scrolled down, and will click the JSTOR link. \n","10":"The PDF version of the article is the better option if you do not need the highlighting. It allows scrolling through the entire article and printing it.\n"}
