To search for articles, electronic books, news articles, and journals on your topic please visit the Library's web page at http://my.limestone.edu/library and select "New - Search Everything" listed under Library Resources.  Once at the Search Everything guide, be sure to check the Full Text and Scholarly limiters for only full text and scholarly material.  In the search box type in the following search term:

From off-campus you will be prompted to login with your Limestone College username and password.  This is the same information you use to access your Blackboard and LC Portal interface.

You will see many journal articles listed.  You can narrow down your search by scrolling down and looking in the left-hand link bar for "Source Types" to limit your results.
