When your topic is super specific or you've already tried searching a few database and can't finding anything, a really great place to start is in OneSearch. OneSearch searches almost all our databases, so you can find articles, streaming media, books, eBooks and more at the same time. 

Once you've done a search you really just have to review what's on the list to see what will work for your assignment. Here are a few tips: 

  • You can use the tools on the result list narrow down the results by date, source type and more. 
  • You can get citations for any print book you use by clicking on the quotes
  • You can get citations for everything else--articles, eBooks, streaming media--by clicking on Full text available. Once on the item page in the database, look for the citation option, usually in the upper right corner of the page,. 

We have a How to Use OneSearch guide for more details and screenshots on how to use it.
