How are library journal article databases different from using Google?
What do you need?
- To find research journal articles on a topic, use a library database.
- To find an article for which you already have the reference, check the KCC Journal Collection to see if it is available online at KCC or other UH libraries.
- Articles without the PDF icon - we don't access to the full article.
- Use the date limits if needed.
- Review articles provide summary of important articles. Original research articles provide specific details and procedures, suitable for replication.
- Open access, full-text available to the public.
- Use the Citation link to copy the APA reference.
- Scientific research, global news, and commentary.
- More Help.
- Go to Settings, click on Library Links, add Kapiolani Community College Library to link to KCC articles.
