Pace Library subscribes to 204 databases and many are full-text. Databases that include peer-reviewed articles in the field of Education are:
ILLiad is the library’s inter-library loan tool that allows you to request books, articles, dissertations or conference proceedings that Pace Library does not own from libraries all over the United States.
Do you have article citations in which you cannot find the full-text article?
Step One: Search the Pace Library homepage using the Journal Title Tab
If we do have access to the journal, click on the link for the database that has the publication date you need.
Step Two: Look for an option to search within the publication, then paste in the full article title, in quotation marks.
Step Three: If no results are found, we don't have access to that journal and you need to try Google Scholar.
Step Four: Run the title of article (not the journal title) through Google Scholar. You might find the full text.
Step Five: Still nothing? You need to request the article from InterLibrary Loan. Log in to the ILLiad system and click on New Request -- Articles
Creating proper APA citations can be challenging but there are lots of ways to get help.
Citation management software is also very helpful for saving and managing all your references, and generating formatted citations in thousands of different styles. I highly recommend choosing a citation management software and getting familiar with it, especially if you plan to continue research and publication after graduation. The library recommends either EndNote or Zotero.
EndNote can be downloaded for free from adam.pace.edu. Once you graduate you will have to buy updates to the software.
Zotero is free and open-source and can be downloaded at zotero.org. Zotero is completely free up to 300 MB of storage.
See the guides below for more information.
