How to Cite (3:50) 


The GSU Library has a search box called Discover on the homepage. Should you use it or search one of the library's databases (A-Z databases)? If you try it, here are some tips:

  • Be specific with key words. Example: search "local food movement". Put phrases in quotation marks.
  • Use the Advanced search to limit with additional keywords such as United States.
  • Use the limits on the left such as scholarly (peer reviewed) articles, full text, or library catalog.

You may want to consider searching a database in the A to Z list such as Academic Search Complete , JSTOR, or Research Library.
