Tip 3: Databases. Databases offer a great way to find information on specific subjects. It’s often good advice to start a search using a database that matches with a particular discipline, such as the IEEE Digital Library (electrical engineering) or BIOSIS Previews (biology), for example. General purpose science databases such as the Web of Science or Scopus are great too. Each database has its own special interface. While searching a database, you can “click through” to full-text content when available.
