Here's an example of using ProQuest.
- After you navigate to a database, you will need to use the keywords you created when you were at the Brainstorming tab to search for articles. In the picture below you can see the key words: "solar power" and benefit
- Next click the Search button.
- You should see a list of results like this:
- "A" tells you how many results the database returned. If you get a BIG number, try adding another key word to help reduce the number of results, or see "D" below
- "B" shows you the titles. Browse the titles until you find something that looks interesting and close to your topic.
- "C" is an example of what full-text looks like. If you see "Find It" that means full text is not available.
- "D" is how you limit to different kinds of sources: Newspapers, magazines and scholarly journals. Start with newspapers, magazines and trade journals for best results.
