Pick up a Journal

Monday, March 31st, 2014 | Posted in Collections, Faculty, News, Resources, Students by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

While there are plenty of journals to read online, how about picking one up at the FMHI Research Library and reading it in person?  Here are a few that might pique your interest:

Behavioral Disorders, vol. 38 no. 4

  • What affects academic functioning in secondary special education students with serious emotional and/or behavioral problems? (201)
  • The relationship between victimization at school and achievement: The Cusp Catastrophe Model for Reading Performance (228)

Health Affairs, vol. 33 no. 3

  • The Affordable Care Act may increase the number of people getting tested for HIV by nearly 500,000 by 2017 (378)
  • People and places: Mapping the HIV/AIDS epidemic (427)
  • Case studies from three states: Breaking down silos between health care and criminal justice (474)

JAIDS, vol. 65 no. 5

  • Prevalence, incidence, and persistence of psychiatric and substance use disorders among mothers living with HIV (526)
  • Sexual risk trajectories among MSM in the United States: Implications for pre-exposure prophylaxis delivery (579)

Need Help Starting Your Research?

Friday, March 28th, 2014 | Posted in Faculty, News, Resources, Students by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

You have a research project.  You also have a general idea or concept you’d like to research, but you don’t have enough background information to get started.  How about using “Researcher Starters” for some help?

Researcher Starters are a feature of the Find It! tool available on the USF Libraries‘ website.

To use Research Starters, type a subject into the Find It! search box.  On the results page, look near the top of the page for the Research Starter.

In this example, the Research Starter is Mental Health.  If you click through, you will open a full-length article.  Note here that the article for Mental Health is from the Salem Press Encyclopedia of Health, a reputable and valid source. You can download, print, and export the article and citation as you would any other electronic resource available through the USF Libraries.

You should know that, in some instances, a Research Starter may not be retrieved.  In other instances, the Research Starter may pull from a different discipline (say, Biology instead of Social Work). Although you may not find something 100% of the time, what you do find will be a good, verifiable source to help you get your research started.
