SOWK 201: Where to search


These databases are your best bets for this assignment:

Searching More Than One Database At A Time

You may want to search more than one database at a time. This will save you from having to repeat your searches. To search more than one database at once, open any EBSCO database (like the ones listed above). Once you're in the database, look above the search box. You will see the database name. Beside that you will see Choose Databases. Click on that and it will give you a list of databases. ***Note: This list does not include non-EBSCO databases. If you wish to search a database that is not listed, like JSTOR or Opposing Viewpoints in Context, you will need to go back to the A-Z list of databases and search that one individually.*** You can check as many as you would like. Then click okay. Your search page will look the same, but it will have option Show All. You do not need to click this. It is only there to remind you which databases you selected.

Helpful Hints

You are not limited to just these databases. Depending on your topic, you may want to try another database. Academic Search Complete is a broad database that covers many disciplines. If your topic involves a school or a teacher, then you may want to try an education database like ERIC. To find a complete list of all 100+ databases click the button below.
