Abraham Maslow is best known for his "hierarchy of needs" theory in the field of motivation. “Holistic Dynamic” theory assumes that the whole person is continually being motivated by one need or another. When searching for articles, it is best to search for “Maslow” paired with terms like “needs”, “motivation”, or “hierarchy of needs” instead of the term “holistic dynamic”.

Here are some instructions for searching for this in the Ebsco databases on the library's site:

  1. Go to the library home page.
  2. In the top middle-right there is a heading titled "Collections." Click on this heading and then select "Databases."
  3. On the next page, click on the link labeled "Ebsco Quick Search," which is underneath the heading "Featured Resources" in the middle of the page.
  4. Once on the Ebsco search page, you will see three search bars in the top left. Use the first search bar to type in "Maslow" and the second to type in another term such as "hierarchy of needs." Then select "Search" to the right.
  5. You will now be able to choose "Full Text" and "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals" as an option in the margin to the left of your search results.
