On the library web page (http://www.fhsu.edu/library) enter your topic into the search box.  For best results, just put in the most important words, rather than a sentence.  For example, rather than searching "How can children be motivated to read more?", just type in reading motivation children.

To limit your results to scholarly, peer-reviewed articles, click "peer reviewed journals"on the right side of the results page. You can also select Full-Text Online. (If you are using a mobile device, you may need to click "Tweak My Results" to see these options). This will decrease the number of results, but they will all be scholarly articles with a link to the complete article.  Click Full-Text Available to see the links to the article, or click the article title to find more information, such as a summary.
