Databases that include full-text articles take articles that originally appeared in a magazine, journal, or book, and reproduce them online.
A citation telling the user where the article originally appeared is given at the top of the record.
Many periodical databases with full-text articles also include an abstract or summary of the article.
1. Identify your topic.
2. List Keyword (s) or phrases that could be used to describe the subjects including alternative words or phrases that have the same meaning (synonyms).
3. List any terms that could be used to limit the search by time period or publication.
Determine which databases may be relevant to your topic. Since not all databases tend to be divided by subject area, it is important to know where the topic fits, so that the appropriate database is selected.
