Communication Disorders Databases

Our discovery tool, OneSearch, searches over 100 databases simultaneously, but there are many times you want to use the native interface of our databases. For example,  in the case of PubMed, this is a free database you can continue to use after you graduate.  In the case of CINAHLPlus with Full Text (EbscoHost) you have more control over refining your search strategy and the export to EndNoteWeb transfers bibliographic information into your citation manager efficiently and often, in the case of peer reviewed, scholarly journal articles, does accurate and complete information.
