You can access online articles you need from the Psychology library research guides.

To get to the guides (called LibGuides), go to the library website and click on the LibGuides link.

You can also go directly to the LibGuides by clicking on

From the Browse by Subject listing, click on Psychology.

Then if you cannot find your specific course guide, just go to the general subject guide (Social Work, Psychology, etc)

Click on the Find Articles tab near the top of the page.  This page lists relevant library research databases that contain articles pertaining to your topic.

Examples of such databases include the Psychology & Behavioral Sciences CollectionSocial Sciences Full Text,Academic OneFile and Academic Search Complete.

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.

Once you are in a library research database, be sure that you check the box for Full Text if you need to retreive the complete article right away. Also, if  you need only peer reviewed articles, check that box as well.

Possible search terms for your topic may include "poverty," "poverty AND families," "poverty AND children," "poverty AND education," etc. If you get a large number of results, you may want to narrow your search down by date (example: past five years), by specific populations (age, ethnicity, etc).
