In college, many research projects are meant to expose you to peer reviewed articles and books. We will therefore choose a scholarly database to search within. Furthermore, at the undergraduate level, most research projects are best served by large, broad, multidisciplinary databases
Form a Search by Combining your Three Keywords with AND:
( Microgravity ) AND ( Diet ) AND ( "International Space Station" )
We recommend ProQuest Central as the starting place for most students. To access ProQuest Central from the library’s homepage (library.cooper.edu) click the “Databases” tab.
The processed outlined in the following steps will work similarly in other databases. If you are looking for articles in particular research areas, you can also try theses databases that are more specific to certain disciplines:
For example, for Electrical, Computer, Mechanical, and General Engineering, try:
Journals, transactions, and magazines published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Also includes Bell Labs Technical Journal back to 1922 and MIT Press Computing & Engineering eBook Collection back to 1943. See journal title list here.
You will also see brief records, but not full text, for conference proceedings and other content. Use the item request form to request access.
For example, for Biochemical, Medical, or Health Engineering, try:
PubMed comprises over 30 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. PubMed citations and abstracts include the fields of biomedicine and health, covering portions of the life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemical sciences, and bioengineering.
