Answer

HI Tina

Give me a call and I can walk you through the process. The information you were given is not incorrect. If you login with your OUID and password to myottawa.ottawa.edu find the online databases on the right hand side of the page and click that link. Once in the databases you must find Ebscohost. Once in Ebscohost, choose about three databases (make sure you read and see which fits your topic) by checkmarking them and then pressing continue. Then you will have a search box come up. Before entering any terms go below the search box and checkmark peer-review and scholarly and full-text options. Then enter your search in the box.

Give me a call if you need direct help 785-248-2536. I am in the office until 6pm CST.
