Which databases to search?
In general, here are some guidelines on which databases to search.
LIRN Databases (Infotrac [Gale], Proquest, Credo Reference):
General info, English classes (incl. Literature), Business,
Newspapers, Criminal Justice, Social Issues, Psychology.
Specialized LIRN databases:
Literature: use Infotrac and scroll down to “L” for “Literature”
Psychology: use Proquest for the PsychInfo database
Infotrac/Gale also has a deep research database called
Academic Onefile, highly recommended for every course,
except specialized health research.
10
More database guidelines
EBSCO Databases:
Use EBSCO databases for specialized health research.
These databases allow for use of specialized medical terminology
keywords and provide access to Medline and Nursing Databases.
Westlaw Database:
Use WestlawNext for all legal-related programs, including
Paralegal (AS), Legal Studies (BA), Crime Scene Technology (AS),
Forensic Investigations (BS), and Criminal Justice (AS and BA).
•These programs would benefit from using the LIRN databases,
as well.
11
More database guidelines
For MBA, PA, and PhD degree programs
in Education and Psychology:
Utilize the specialized databases for Business,
Education, Psychology (PsychInfo), and Medical
(EBSCO Medical Databases), as well as the
Proquest Dissertations database.
LIRN’s Academic Onefile (Infotrac) is a full research database,
and can also be utilized for higher degree programs.
12
Each institution has databases
to suit its programs. Not all
institutions have the same
programs or databases.

Each institution will have access to different
database resources that are contracted for that
institution.
The resources shown here are for the LIRN
databases which happen to be common to all of
our institutions.
After you have received your login information
via email, please log in and explore the database
resources available to you.

Why limit which databases to search?
Why not just “search everything?”
These databases are HUGE!!!!
As we will see, even a search limited to the
Academic Onefile database returns far too many
results for students to review for possible use.
Being selective allows for better, more targeted,
search results.
21
Click the NAME of the database to open it:
22
Shows name of
Database HERE.
This is the search box.

A phrase by itself
24
25
Let’s narrow our search. 3500 full text articles is
way too many to look through to make
intelligent selections for a student paper.
26
Much better! 125 articles – from a targeted
search – provides a good selection.
27
To open an article, without having to wait for the
browser to page back and forth, RIGHT CLICK THE
MOUSE for a context-menu.
Select “Open
in New Tab
28
To access the article, just click on the
new tab. To return to search results,
click on previous tab.
29
For purposes of APA Citation, some
articles have a DOI number. In Infotrac
databases, this is at the top. For Proquest
articles, it is located at the bottom of the
article. If no DOI is listed, the citation
requirements for the article will be different.
30
A word about APA citation help:
For non-database, online resources, such as Web
pages, please be sure to inform your students that
quality information has an identifiable author, a person
with a name, who is responsible for the accuracy and
currency of the information in an article.
Too often, students don’t realize this is important, and
they ask us how to cite an article from a Web site that
has no identifiable author. While this CAN be done, it is
not scholarly material. Therefore students need to be
informed of what constitutes acceptable information
for your courses.
31
Printing & Saving Options
Printing may also be accomplished through
the browser menu, or through pressing CNTL+P.
32
Automatic Citation Tools
We have found that many
automatically generated
citations contain errors and
should ALWAYS be doublechecked. We recommend
students learn to cite for
themselves in order to
maintain control
over how it is done. This
includes NOT using Microsoft
Word’s citation tools.
33
Finally, when you are using a public
computer that is used by others, please
remember to close all browser windows
which will automatically log you out of the
library portal.
You’ll want to be especially sure to
remember this so others do not have
access to YOUR library account
information.
