Steps for finding articles (journal, magazine and newspaper), books and video on a topic
Go to Databases A-Z from the library homepage.
Look for EBSCOhost under E or under Popular Databases. You'll be prompted to choose an EBSCO database.
Try starting with OmniFile Full Text.
Start with a general search. In this example, the search is for the keywords Plastic Straws. After browsing through your results, broaden or narrow your search based on keywords and terminology relevant to your topic.
Look for an article in OmniFile and after that find an ebook. Go to the Research Guide for ebooks. You'll find a list of several sites where you will be able to search for ebooks. You can also begin your search for an ebook in the Library Catalog. On the results page, limit Book to eBook.
Do the same search words from your EBSCOhost OmniFile search work in the library catalog? Or, do you need to broaden your search for a book compared to a search for an article?
Try finding a video. Check out our Research Guide for Streaming Video. Search Alexander Street Press and Films on Demand.
Do you need a newspaper article? Look under N at Databases A-Z. New York Times is listed there, along with Nexis Uni and several newspapers at ProQuest.
