Articles in Databases

Before you search the databases, make sure that you've listed the key concepts and ideas in your research question. Create a list of any synonyms for those concepts: Are there other terms or names in common use? What about more specific phrases? Read each set of results carefully as a group of short documents. Look for new concepts, named persons, named events, organizations, etc. that could be used to adjust your search.

InterLibrary Loan Help

When you find a relevant citation, click on "Check the RIC library" to open another window which will indicate if the library has access to the journal and in what format (print or online or some of each for different spans of years). If the next display does not contain a link to the journal title or to full text, then use the "Request this item" link to request through InterLibrary Loan (ILL).  Remember: requests for articles held in Rhode Island will require a minimum of 5 - 7 days; those outside RI will require longer.
