Public Health: Find Articles

A research guide on the subject of public health.

What is the best way to search the library databases?

The best way to search the library databases is to try out different combinations of key words/short phrases.  Phrase searching is one technique you can use to refine your search.  To phrase search, place phrases inside quotation marks or parentheses.  This tells the database to search the phrase as a unit instead of a string of keywords.

For example:

"business management"

(business management)

Current News

Where can I find current news articles?

For current news, search the Nexis Uni database for newspaper articles on topics of interest.
