  • Limit by population of interest: vocational counselors, middle school students, aged, blacks, immigrants, minority groups, battered females, fathers, mothers, etc.
  • Finding SPECIFIC Journal Articles

    Directions for finding specific journal articles in the library databases:

    Click the Journals A to Z link below.

    In the search box, type the first couple words of the journal title, like Journal of career, then click Search.

    Your journal title should appear in the list of results, along with a link to the databases that contain that particular journal.

    When you click one of those database links, (like ABI/Inform Global) you are taken to that specific journal within that database. 

    Now you have to find the specific article you're looking for. To do that, type a couple words from the article title in the "Search within this publication" box and click Search.

    Your article should appear in the results list.
