Understanding Childhood Through Statistics: Find Articles

Research guide for 50:163:460, taught by Dr. Wenhua Lu.

Finding Articles

To find articles, you can use the following access points:

  • QuickSearch  (QuickSearch Help): Use one search bar to find journals, articles, books, periodicals, videos, and more. 
  • Indexes and Databases: Browse all of the libraries' indexes and databases by subject or alphabetically. Once you choose an index or database, search your topic.
  • Go directly to the suggested databases given to you by your librarian

CAUTION: Both Popular and Scholarly/Peer Reviewed Articles are available in all of these resources. Your assignment may require you to only use peer-reviewed articles. What is the difference?
