To begin using library resources visit the library’s home page: my.limestone.edu/library. From here you will be able to access a variety of sources. As an off campus student, you will be prompted to login using your Limestone email username and password before accessing the library's online resources.

Since this is a fairly recent topic there will be more articles than books available on the subject. You can access online articles through the databases. If you begin with the Research Databases Guide (http://libguides.limestone.edu/aecontent.php?pid=360472)  you will find a search utility where you can search for relevant articles on your  topic. Once you are in a library research database, be sure that you check the box for Full Text if you need to retrieve the complete article right away. Also, if you need only peer reviewed articles, check that box as well.

You are also able to select specific databases from the Research Databases Guide. I would suggest looking in Opposing Viewpoints first. To reach this database, begin at the Research Databases Guide (above) and click on the “O” tab, then scroll down to Opposing Viewpoints.

Possible search terms for your topic may include:  Affordable Health Care Act AND Homeless persons OR Homeless families, Obama Care OR Health Insurance reform AND Homelessness, health insurance reform OR mandatory insurance AND Homeless women OR men OR children, etc.

To locate e-books on the topic use the Find Electronic Books link: http://libguides.limestone.edu/electronicbooks.  

I am not sure which course you are taking, but there may be a Library Guide designed for your course. To get to the guides (called LibGuides), go to the library website my.limestone.edu/library and click on the LibGuides link. You can also go directly to the LibGuides by clicking on  http://libguides.limestone.edu/.  From the Browse by Subject listing, click on the discipline for the course.
