Healthy Research Habits

Remote Access

Are you off campus?

Many electronic resources (research databases, e-books, etc.) are limited to CSU students, faculty, and staff when accessed off campus. You may be prompted to authenticate by entering your CampusNet ID and password. 

Questions? Here are some tips for resolving common connection problems.

Essential Databases

Many of these databases can be searched simultaneously. Start in CINAHL and click Choose Databases above the search boxes to make your selections.

Search Tips

Productive and effective searching:

  • Start with one or two keywords (use database suggestions if they look good) 
    • Combine synonyms with OR to include related terms (palliative care OR hospice OR end of life care)
    • Add terms with AND to narrow results (palliative care AND occupational therapy)
  • Review results to brainstorm additional or alternate keyword options
  • Try multiple searches with different keywords and explore more than one database
  • Apply limiters thoughtfully
    • After seeing how productive your keywords are, limit by Peer Reviewed and English language
    • Other limiters to try:
      • date range
      • full text
