    Bibliographic Databases.

    • On-line search strategy

      • Search a bibliographic database (i.e. Cinahl)

      • Use the citation & abstract to decide if relevant.

      • Locate the Journal (or book)

      • If it is an on-line journal that the UoY subscribe to – you must access it via a UoY computer.

      • Go to the Journal web site and view/download the article.

      • If it is not available online (or not subscribed to) make your request through the Library.

    • REMEMBER: most databases DO NOT link directly to on-line journals

    • Do these tasks in your groups (3)

    • Each member of the group will need to locate a journal article (3+1 = 4 in total).

    • Don’t use a search engine (no Googling).

    • Use UoY Databases and e-journal web sites.

    • Use Metalib – (You will need Athens).

    • You will find some results in CINAHL & BNI
