Database searching - Psychology

Are you studying Psychology? Need peer-reviewed, scholarly journal articles?  Finding too many articles in Library Search?

This session will show you how to find relevant databases and search them using the common strategies of a savvy searcher. Practice using keyword, subject and phrase searching, while learning all about truncation and how to limit your results.

After this session you will be well on your way to finding relevant scholarly information for your assignments.

How do I access an online class?

We recommend Chrome or Firefox as your browser. Copy and paste the link above into your browser to access the tutorial at the allocated time.

If you have a headset for your computer, headphones and microphone, check that all is working by running the Audio Wizard before the class begins. Without headphones or microphone you can hear through your computer speakers (turn up your volume) and you will ‘speak’ by texting us via chat. You’ll still be in the room and will ‘see’ us all. Many computers also have built-in microphones.

If your sound is breaking up, it may mean you have problems with internet download speed in your area, so stay in the room, and make a free-call to speak and hear the class on the phone.  At the same time, because you’re in the room, you’ll see what’s happening. The free-call number is 1800 559 347. You can also email learnlinesupport@cdu.edu.au.
