New Database Trial - Research Starters Business/Education
Doing some business or education research but aren't sure where to start? The library has a trial to a new Ebsco database called Research Starters. Available for business or education research, Research Starters takes a topic and provides:
an Overview to explain the topic, Further Insights/Applications to demonstrate how the points discussed in the overview can be applied, a Viewpoints/Issues Discourse section to help the reader develop a critical perspective on a topic, a glossary of Terms & Concepts, a Bibliography and a Suggested Reading list.One of the best features of a Research Starters article is the bibliography and suggested reading section at the end. If an article listed in this section is available in an Ebsco database or is freely available online, Research Starters links to it so by starting with Research Starters, you can quickly gather a collection of resources on topic. Though the Education and Business Research Starters databases can be searched individually, Research Starters is actually integrated into various Ebsco databases so that when you search Academic Search Complete, for example, you'll not only get results from the Academic Search Complete database, you'll also get a list of relevant topic results from the Research Starters database. To see how this works, see the screenshot below. Research Starters Business/Education can be accessed through the Library's Database Trials webpage or by searching one of Ebsco's databases such as Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, or Education Research Complete.
