HLTH 315: Community Nutrition: Finding HLTH Information

Keywords

Before you begin your research, take a few minutes to think hard about your topic and identify several keywords that you'll use to jumpstart your searching. 

KEYWORDS carry some of the most important meanings that will open doors to vast amounts of information. You can develop keywords by searching reference sources, books, websites, and thesauri, among other materials.

Creating keyword lists are important in that you will use these terms to search library tools such as the library catalog and article research databases. 

Getting Full Text

Some databases will have the full text of the entire article available within the database, others will only have a citation for the article. When there is only a citation available, you will see a yellow find it button. This button will give you options for getting a full text version of the article. If we have access to it in another database it will be linked there.

If it says "Not Available Online" then look for "Check Availability in SU Catalog"; if you see that then we may have a hardcopy version on the shelf in the library.

If you don't have either of those options then you can request it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
