Here’s an in-depth look at a recent Ask a Librarian conversation:
Student: Hi! I am writing a literature review on the relationship between technology overuse and family interaction. I am coming up short on proper keywords to search, do you have any suggestions?
Librarian: Sure, let’s take a dive in and see
Student: Sounds good!
Librarian: We’ll start with a combined database search. One sec while I set it up.
Librarian: When you say “technology”, what do you mean specifically? Cell phone? Computers? Social media?
Student: I was typically looking at smartphone overuse, but I would be open to all possibilities.
Librarian: here is a combined database search that I started
Librarian: The databases searched are: APA PsycInfo, Computers & Applied Sciences Complete, Health and Psychosocial Instruments, and Health Source Consumer Edition
Student: this is perfect, thank you so much!!
Librarian: lots of articles coming up! let me know if you have questions about accessing an article or anything else.
Student: will do, thanks so much!
Librarian: of course!
