Library Notes for Political Science

Teaching resources, news, and links to keep McGill’s Political Scientists informed

Update to article databases tool

Posted by Megan on December 22, 2009

The library’s Article and Research Databases list has been updated with several new features:

• Quick Search: save time by searching several pre-selected article databases at once. The familiar Find a Database list will still be available for selecting article databases by name or specific subject.

• Customization: sign in with your library account (barcode on your McGill ID card and PIN) to save search results and store your favourite e-journals and databases.

• Save or email selected article citations or export them to EndNote.

• Set up automatic searches and be alerted by e-mail when new results are found.

• Refine your searches by browsing the subjects, authors, and publications dates displayed in your results. Full Text and Full Text Peer Reviewed articles are indicated by icons (see image below).

If you have any questions or comments about this, don’t hesitate to ask me! You can also read the help files for more information.

Select several databases to search at once. Choose from pre-selected sets or pick your own.
