EDU502: Burnett: EBSCO Search

A guide to finding scholarly articles using library resources

EBSCO Databases

The best place to start is with a multidatabase search using EBSCOhost.  This multidatabase search will allow you to search most (not all) of the library's journals.

First, create a MyEBSCO Account so you can save your results and generate bibliographies.

Click on Academic Search Complete from the library's Database page (show me) - then select the following databases from the “choose databases” option:

  • Academic Search Complete
  • Education Research Complete
  • ERIC
  • PsycINFO
  • SocINDEX with FullText

Click here for demo showing this being done.

Next, limit your results to Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals (show me)

Save your results using the Folder Feature in MyEBSCO (show me)

You can later generate a list of your saved articles in the Style of your choice and export them to WordPlease note the EBSCO Citation Generator is NO substitute for knowing proper citation style.  There are frequently errors.  It is a tool to assist you NOT replace you!!!!
