Use encyclopedias, handbooks and dictionaries to gather background information on your topic. Entries in encyclopdias, handbooks and dictionaries will provide summaries and definitions and will often include citations for further reading.
Keep a list of your search terms, for example:
aging OR ageing
aging -- physiology
Access library databases, ebooks, journals, journal articles, and streaming video from off campus.
1) select a resource from Databases A-Z or a Research Guide (ex. EBSCOhost)
2) on the “EzPproxy” login screen
3) enter your FalconNet username and password
NOTE: Your EzPproxy login is the same as your Campus Network login (FalconNet); also, your Canvas login and your Email login--without the @cedarcrest.edu. It is NOT your My CedarCrest login.
If you encounter a problem or need assistance email Cressman Library Information Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Email individual librarians to make a Reference appointment for help with research questions.
