Searching Multiple Databases at Once

Tips for searching multiple databases at once

Because the topics for this class are so interdisciplinary, you may want to search multiple databases at once. While I wouldn't recommend trying this with English search terms (you would probably be bombarded with thousands of results), it works fairly well using Spanish search terms. If you want to search all the EBSCO databases at once, try the following:

  1. Connect to the EBSCOhost databases.
  2. Check the box at the top for "Select / deselect all" or check the boxes next to the databases you want to search. Then click "Continue".
  3. Enter your Spanish language search terms without special characters in the search box (e.g., haiti and economia). Then click "Search".

Most results will be in Spanish. When you search all the EBSCO databases, you are not searching all the library's databases. However, your search will include results from Economia y Negocios, Fuente Academica, MedicLatina, and the MLA International Bibliography.

Additional Databases with Spanish Language Emphasis

In most databases, if you don't see a link for the PDF or HTML full-text of the article, use the Find It! button to see if it is available full-text in another database or in print in Dunbar Library.

Although it doesn't necessarily have a Spanish language emphasis, you'll want to try some searches in JSTOR. It does have a lot of full-text Spanish journals.

Images

You may use these images for in-class presentations, but if your presentation or paper will be posted to the internet or published in some other way, then you must get the image creator's permission to use the image. 

Always cite images as you would any other resource. See our guide for Citing your Sources or ask your librarian if you need help.

Creating a movie or practicing and presentation

Creating a movie or practicing a presentation

If you need help creating a digital audio or video file, visit the Student Technology Assistance Center (STAC) on the 2nd floor of Dunbar Library. STAC can help you create great projects, even if you have no previous experience.

If you would like to practice your presentation, you can reserve Room 216 in Dunbar Library, which is similar in setup and technology to classrooms on campus.
