Use this guide to get started learning how to use the resources at Odum Library.

Get started!

Quick overview: articles are published in journals, which are also called periodicals. Academic, peer-reviewed journals specialize in specific topics. These journals can be found in print and in databases, and sometimes both. Databases tend to specialize in certain categories, like anthropology, communication, health research, etc. GALILEO functions like a search engine and will return results from all over the research map, which is sometimes less than helpful. 

There are many tools available within databases to make your searches efficient and successful--ask a librarian for some helpful tips!
