Searching for articles

Because library databases like ProQuest contain millions of articles, we can use more complex search terms than when we search book collections.

Try searching for articles on a multifaceted topic. Here are example searches:

"college students"  AND  wellness

"college students"  AND  "self esteem"

parenting  AND  stress

adolescents   AND  "coming out"

exercise AND  children AND  "self esteem"
