Use Articles To:

Searching using Databases
Start by selecting a library database. A database acts like a search engine, but instead of searching the internet it searches for information from journals, magazines, newspapers, etc. Deciding which database to search depends on what type of information you need.
General Databases: A database like Academic Search Premier or Academic OneFile used to search across subjects to find a broad array of information.
Subject Specific Databases: A database that is tailored to your field of study; i.e. CINHAL for Nursing Majors.
Special Format Databases: A databases contain a specific type of material; i.e. EBSCO SWOT Analyses.
If you’re not sure where to start your search, ask a librarian!
Searching for Articles Using ODIN
Using the Online Articles tab on the ODIN search bar allows you to search for journal, magazine, and newspaper articles. ODIN searches across the UJ library databases to see if there is an online full-text version of the article. If no online version is available then you can hit the request button to order a copy through ILL.
