We would recommend either searching through the Search Anything bar or EBSCO Quick Search.

Search Anything:

  1. Click on the following link to begin: Search
  2. Change the All to the left of the search bar to Articles, and then select the limiter for Scholarly/Peer Reviewed.
  3. Type in your keyword(s) with quotations surrounding them (e.g. "successful online learners") and click Go to see result(s).
  4. Click on the article title or "Full PDF Online" to view the article.

EBSCO Quick Search:

  1. Click on the following link to begin: Search
  2. Click Databases by Name under the Search Anything bar.
  3. Go to the left to Browse by Letter. Click the Letter E.
  4. Scroll down and click EBSCO Quick Search.
  5. Before you type your search terms, scroll down to the Limit your Results section. Click Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals. If you have a publication date range requirement, you can enter it in the Published Date field.
  6. Similar to the above search strategy, type in keyword(s) with quotations surrounding the keywords (i.e. "successful online learners") and click Search.
  7. When the results come up, you may either modify your search by adding words on the second line, such as traits or characteristics.
  8. You should find a selection of scholarly articles in the results. If you find a result that says Get it at Liberty beneath it, the article is not available in full text in EBSCO. Click Get it at Liberty to check to see if we have the article in other databases. If we do, the library system will list the databases; you can choose which one you would like to view the article.
