Introduction to Library Research

Library handouts and a video presentation on starting your research using the resources at the Macdonald-Kelce Library at The University of Tampa.

Some Sources are not Included in Summon

Summon is a great place to begin looking for resources, but it does not contain content from every database the library has acquired. The content of some of our databases cannot be discovered in Summon, whereas other databases or datasets provide only partial content results when searched within Summon. This page lists the databases, datasets, journals, e-books and other content best searched on the individual database platform.

Databases Partially Searched by Summon, Go Directly to Database for Full Results

Please Note this list of databases includes streaming content, indexes, abstracts, and other types of content that don't have identifiers such as ISSNs or ISBNs, which give a complete report of what is discoverable in Summon. For this reason, you may find it best to search on these individual platforms for best results. 

Databases not Searchable in Summon

Please note these eight databases are not active in Summon and need to be searched on each individual platform by clicking on the link.
