   A quick tutorial on how to use one of the best and broadest online sources for articles and other documents the library has available
  1. ISU Library -> Resources by Subject or
  2. ISU Library -> Articles -> Databases -- Alphabetical List -> Academic Search Complete (EBSCOhost)
    • can add more database by choosing "Choose databases"
    • use key words in search. They are like math operators :), like and, or, (), etc.
    • advanced search. Cool stuff.
    • can limit search by selecting options on left side panel
    • make sure you keep citation of what you have found
