Did you ever wish you didn’t have to go to so many databases to find the articles you need? Your wish has come true!
With EZ search you can now search up to 50 databases in one search. How can you do this, you ask?
From this page enter your search terms and select databases which seem appropriate to your topic. Don’t select too many or your search will be overwhelming. The default search will look for your keywords in the title. If you need to expand your search change it to keyword using the pull down menu.
Why is this useful?
EZ SEARCH is particularly useful for searches that cross disciplinary boundaries. For instance, if you’re searching for articles about school bullying, you would want to search in the Education databases (Academic Search Premier, Education Full Text, ProQuest Education Journals) but you might also want to add some Psychology journals to your search (PsycArticles, PsycINFO, ProQuest Psychology Journals). And then you might also want to add a couple of Social Science databases (ProQuest Social Science and Wilson Omni-File).
EZ Search allows to search in databases that cover several different fields, which makes it a very powerful search option. Try and let us know if you have questions.
