10.2 Searching a database
We are going to show you a database called 'Expanded Academic Index ASAP'. It indexes thousands of journals and is useful for any subject you are studying. Some of the articles even have the full text online (namely the article is accessed and can be read on your computer) You would use the principles you learnt in Planning your Research and Constructing a search strategy to find journal articles in this database.
Practise using the database. You will be given step-by-step guidance on how to proceed. Just remember to read the instructions in the left yellow frame and follow the prompts.
The tutorial should take about 12 minutes to complete. Make sure you enlarge the new window so that you can see the whole screen! Close this window to return to Library and Research Skills.
