I searched Academic Search Complete. The link to our How to Use Academic Search Complete libguide is below. The database link is on the home page of the libguide.

You can also access it on the library homepage using the drop down menu under the Go Straight to the Good Stuff heading, by the big black arrow. Just click the arrow to see the menu, then select the database you want and hit the Go button.

When off-campus, you will have to log on with your last name and COM ID.

This was actually kind of a tough one. After some trial and error, I hit on a good search phrase. You can just copy and paste it into the EBSCO search bar. FYI, the capitalized AND and OR tells the database to find articles that mention both terms (in the case of AND) or either term (in the case of OR): construction AND (steel OR iron) AND industrial safety

From the result list, use the limiters on the left to find what you want. First, select for Full Text. You can then select the Geography header and choose the United States. Next, locate the Subject-Thesaurus Term header. Click to expand. You'll see a short list of subjects and a blue Show More link underneath. Click that link to get a dialog box of all the subjects in the result list. Check off what you want, such as industrial safety, construction industry, safety, and any of those terms with law or legislation and government policy, etc.

The How To libguide includes more search tips and info on getting your citations and other database tools.
