Finding Journal Articles – Using Databases

We often get asked how to find journal articles on a particular subject and users often seem to think that it is something that you can do in a couple of minutes. But you need a little more time to get to grips with the tools and techniques to search effectively.
Even though we have lots of journals on the shelves, searching for articles isn’t a case of wandering along the shelves and picking out a journal that looks interesting. You need to search an index and the indexes are maintained on bibliographic databases.
So… to do effective searches for journal articles you need to get to grips with online databases.
