Email Ann Hallyburton at email@example.com and let her know as much as you can about your information need. She will email you back (usually very, very quickly). If you are wanting to virtually meet up, just let her know days/times you would be available (may be able to meet near-immediately). Virtual meetings with your full group can also be set up.
Start with 2 to 4 words about your topic.

Using this multi-database searching tool, you search healthcare and social sciences-focused resources searched included the research databases MEDLINE (official name of what gets searched through PubMed, the National Library of Medicine’s free way into MEDLINE – but using the library's MEDLINE subscription you get directly to a LOT more full text online), Cochrane Collaboration’s systematic reviews, CINAHL, Education Source, ERIC, SocINDEX, and PsycINFO, as well as multidisciplinary resources such as Academic Search. You may be thinking – I don’t SEE Cochrane listed in that database listing if I click the SEE ALL at the top of my results screen indicating what I’m searching. Well, whenever you search MEDLINE, you end up searching the Cochrane Collaboration’s systematic reviews, too.
Can't get at the full text of something you want? Try finding the article in the HHS All-in-One Article Search box (https://researchguides.wcu.edu/hhs/articles). You can search with just a few words from an article's title. There will be a "PDF Full Text" or "Find Full Text" link following the information about the article.
If you get the "PDF Full Text" link, click that and the full text should open right up.
If you only get the purple "Find Full Text" link, click that. A link to get at the electronic full text or, in some cases, information on how to find the print version in the library will come up. However, if such links do not show, then click the "No full text available? Try Interlibrary L" link that does show after clicking "Find Full Text."
If you are prompted to log into Interlibrary Loan, just use your regular Catamount (student) or WCU (employee) ID and password.
The All-in-One search box allows you to search healthcare, psychological, and related resources like MEDLINE, CINAHL, ERIC, PsycINFO, SocINDEX, SPORTDiscus, Academic Search Complete, and more, all at one time. You can use it whenever you need to find articles. You will also find some electronic books through this search.
If searching with 2 to 4 words or concepts does not get you what you need, contact Ann Hallyburton (email@example.com) or try these more advanced search strategies using Boolean search logic:
