Nursing: NRSE 303 Research for Evidence Based Practice

This guide will assist you in developing your PICOT question, finding resources for your literature review, and citing your sources properly and ethically.

Search Tools for Finding Articles

If you notice an interesting citation in an article, you can search for that article in the library's databases to retrieve the full text. If you cannot easily find the article within the database you are searching, try these tools:

E-Journal Locator

Use this resource to determine if the Burritt Library has an electronic version of the journal in which your article appeared.


Browse by Title Use this search to determine if the CCSU Library offers the journal title you need, and in which format it is held. This search bar defaults to searching by "subject." Make sure you change the drop-down menu to search by "title."

*Note that when using either of these, you would search for the journal title, not the article title. If we subscribe to the journal (in hardcopy or electronically) you can then search the journal for a copy of the article.
