Information Literacy Session for Communication Assignment
Goals for this library session: hone skills in using article databases in order to locate a current article on communication in nursing.
TO GET SOME ARTICLES, USE ARTICLE DATABASES:
Journal article databases let you search on your topic to locate academic, scholarly articles. The library purchases these databases for you to search–this is different from searching on Google or other “free web” search engines!
Get to COCC’s Barber Library list of databases at http://guides.cocc.edu/az.php.
You can also start with our COCC Library webpage and click on:
Take a look at the Resources by Subject link as well–it will list all databases and online encyclopedias for specific subject areas–including Health Sciences.
