Search like a Pro! Learn how to use ProQuest and EBSCOhost to find literature effectively
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are two major databases you will likely come across when searching for literature.
This workshop will introduce and demonstrate useful search techniques (such as wildcards and truncations) and features (such as subject headings and filters) in the two databases to help you find information quickly.
After the workshop, you will be able to navigate the databases to search for literature effectively!
