Onesearch is a tool that enables students to search 95% of all the databases that the UNF Library subscribes to. OneSearch is a comprehensive option to begin your research. Watch this brief video to learn more about the power of searching within a database for your research:
One can begin with a "sloppy search" by entering keywords into OneSearch:
Here is a refined search using the Advanced Search Option. Note the Quotation marks around zika virus and the Boolean Operators (And & Or).
Once you find articles, it is time to go beyond the description of the article (abstract) and take time to read it in its entirety. If an article is promising, take note of the author's bibliography or works-cited page. You can return to OneSearch and search for these articles to build upon your own research.
PDF Full Text provides you with instant access to the full text.
Full Text isn't readily available. However, click on this icon, and OneSearch may be able to retrieve the article.
You can view the article in a block text format. This option is better than nothing, but be mindful that HTML will not provide you with page numbers. Citing an article will be slightly more challenging due to this missing information.
It is important to begin your research while visiting the UNF library. You have full access as a visitor when you physically visit the UNF Library. Searching during your scheduled visit will allow you to send full text documents to your e-mail account.
If you find an article with a PDF file, you can email the PDF file to your email account. Click on the title of the article. Click on the email icon (which can be found on the far right of your screen).
Type your email address in the "E-mail to" field. Finally, click send.
If you find an article that does not have a PDF file, click on the Full Text Finder icon.
If you find the article, you can download the PDF file to the computer desktop, open up your e-mail, and send it as an attachment.
