Use Discovery Search to find books and articles for your topic. Please note that Discovery searches most MCC Library databases. You may wish to search some of the individual databases listed in this guide for more narrow and subject specific results.
To begin searching Discovery Search, go back to the library home page and use the basic search box in the middle of the page.
There are a few ways that you can use Discovery Search and ensure that you are only retrieving Health Sciences periodicals in the search results.
After starting your general search from the Library homepage using the single search box, choose one of these options from the left hand side of the screen:
Choose to limit to "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals" from the left hand options under "Limit to." You will then only be retrieving scholarly journals and based on your search terms will likely consist primarily of health science, medical and nursing journal titles. (You can also combine this option with one of the options listed below)
Under Databases Searched, click "Show More" and then select the medical and health sciences databases from the list (such as CINAHL with Full Text, InfoTrac Health Reference Center Academic, MEDLINE, R2 Digital Library, ScienceDirect).
Add additional search terms to your initial search that more directly relate to medical research topics (such as research, methodology, diagnosis, epidemiology, treatment, case study, report, acute care, inpatient care).
