Find Articles in Focused Library Databases

Databases are searchable collections of materials. The databases listed below contain journals in the fields of personal health.

Skim the descriptions below and try searching on your topic in at least 2 or 3 databases in order to locate relevant articles. Look for ways to limit to peer-reviewed journal articles, typically found as a check-box on the left or right hand sides of your search results.

Finding the Permanent link

To link to an article in a library database, look for the permanent link, so that it will prompt the MyPCC login. The URL at the top of the page, in the web address bar, will NOT work as a stable link.

Search words

What do I type in the search box? Matching your interests to an article can be tricky, so it's worth taking a moment to consider what words to use in a search. To prompt your thinking, imagine the title of the perfect article that would be of interest to you. What main ideas are included? Use a combination of the key concepts and phrases in a search to browse relevant articles. 

Example search phrases:

cardiovascular health AND men AND aging
masculinity AND stereotypes AND advertising
gender differences AND life expectancy AND cancer
race AND health AND men

 

If you don't find full-text

If the article you have found in a library database doesn't have the full text right there, click on the "find it" button to see if the article is available in full-text in another database. If we do have it, it will take you to a page that provides you a link to the database in which the article is available (click on that link to access the article). If we do not have it, you will see a link to request the article through Interlibrary Loan, which takes approximately three days.

The "find it" button will look like this. Button that says "Find It" as it is seen on PCC Library databases
