Welcome IPC330 students!

Option One: Suggested databases to find articles
Option one for searching: Choosing a specific library database to find articles for your assignments.
Advantage: Since these databases focus on healthcare, you can be more general with your search terms and know you are getting back articles that likely relate to healthcare in some way. For example, doing a search for technology.
Disadvantage: You are searching a smaller collection of publications for information.
Search virtually ALL of the library's databases from a single access point! Removes the guesswork of choosing a single source, and is a great place to quickly research across numerous resources simultaneously.
