To search through all of the library databases at once, head over to the Library Catalog and select the Databases tab on the search results page (see screenshot below). This is where you will find scholarly articles, newspaper articles, book reviews, ebooks, and more.
Before you begin searching in an online database, try to think of as many search terms as possible. Think of all the different aspects of your research question and try to generate multiple search terms for those aspects. Come up with synonyms and try the different terms in your search. NOTE: The list below contains suggested search terms, it is by no means a comprehensive list of potential search terms.
Potential Search Terms:
Note: try putting two or more words in "quotation marks" to search for those terms as a single phrase. For example, try searching for both "commercial fishing" and commercial fishing and compare the results!
All databases should have filters (like those shown above) on the search results page that will help you narrow down - or expand - your search results.
