How Do I Find (...) ?: Home

Brief tutorials for common assignments that require library research.

Transferable Skills

The search examples that are depicted under each tab are intended to illustrate common features of the article databases, and of the Library (books) catalog. The database interface illustrated here is similar to many of the other databases provided by the Sawyer Library.

The search strategies (combining search terms; limiting to articles from scholarly journals) will also hold true from search to search, and topic to topic. 

Off-Campus Access to Sawyer Library E-Resources

EZproxy Authentication - access databases from off campus

Current students have access to the online resources from off-campus. At the point of clicking on a link to an online source, users should expect to be prompted for their Suffolk University username and password. This authenticates the user as part of the Suffolk community, and grants access to the online database.
