For Brandman students who study in the field of psychology or education, autism might be a research topic of interest to you. Here is a searchlight focused on how to search for information about autism.
- Start on the library homepage. Type autism into the Discover! search box and click on “Search.”
- The first result you receive should be a Research Starter on Autism, which provides background information on the disorder as well as a brief overview of its treatment and therapy. Additionally, the Bibliography and Related Information offer a wealth of resources.
- Aside from the Research Starter, you will see many books and e-books that the library owns on the topic of autism.
- To refine your search results, select the Advanced Search link below the search box and consider the following options:
- Add the Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals limiter
- Change the dropdown limiter from Select a Field to SU Subject Terms
- Change the date range
- Add additional terms
As always, Ask a Librarian if you need further assistance.
