Finding Articles with JSTOR

JSTOR, standing for "Journal STORage," provides access to journals from many disciplines from their very first issue to usually around 5 years ago. So while this is not the place to go for current research, if you want a historical view of your topic or if currency isn't that important this is a great resource. This video will show you how to do an advanced search in JSTOR and how to download an article.

Using the Thesaurus in a ProQuest Database
 
00:30
For each article in ProQuest (and some other databases like ERIC), a subject is assigned to it. Since many topics can have different forms and relevant synonyms, the database is helping you by assigning these subjects. Sometimes databases, like ProQuest, will establish a thesaurus that allows you to search through them, see what their official term is for that word or phrase, and add it to your search. For me personally, this helps me come up with synonyms to search for! The thesaurus is a helpful tool that the average student doesn't know about. Watch the video to learn how it can help your search!
