Delgado Libraries subscribe to many on-line databases which provide access to digital copies of journals. These databases allow students to easily search for articles and then print, save, or e-mail the articles found.
The decision of which electronic database to use is based on what type of research you are doing. Delgado's list of available databases can be searched by title, subject or vendor.
If you want to search multiple journals by subject to find articles on your research topic the database Academic Search Complete is very helpful with over 10,000 full text journals and periodicals. Try using the search term deadbeat dads to pull up articles. I found 105 articles when I tried this.
To access the databases, click on the tab that says databases on the library's website, then "click here to access databases" to get to the database page. If you are no on campus, it will ask you for a username and password. The username would be your LOLA# and the password would be your birthdate formatted mmddyy.
