A single search box connects you to the vast majority of Clemson Libraries resources, in all formats, including most of our eJournals and the entire library catalog
OneSearch is the best place to begin when:
- You'll get a lot of results, which you can then limit to a specific format (e.g., journal articles, trade publication articles) or to peer-reviewed content.
- You can also focus your results on a specific date range, or add more keywords to narrow your search.
TIP: OneSearch isn't so great for searching for journals by title. Use the Libraries Catalog for that. And the catalog is still the best place to search for books.
This guide's Building/Planning Resources and Business Resources pages provide links to a full range of article databases covering real estate development issues and topics from a variety of perspectives.
Article databases provide a way to search for articles on particular subjects in magazines or journals. These resources are compiled by specialists in each discipline, or by teams of specialists across a range of disciplines. Each database entry provides information about an article's content and context, so that scholars and researchers can determine the article's usefulness to their work. Databases may include or link out to the full text and/or graphics of articles, or they may include only the author, title, date, journal title, issue, and page numbers for each article (that is, the article citation).
Need to know more? Article Databases in Five Minutes (NCSU) is a short video describing the basic features of these essential research tools.
Clemson University Libraries subscribe to several hundred different article databases. All are listed on our Databases A-Z page. Access to these requires a current Clemson ID.
The Clemson Library Catalog does not contain your article, but you can use it to gain access to an article by locating the JOURNAL the article appears in.
- Start with a keyword search. Use AND to add the term "electronic resources" to your search, like this:"real estate development" AND "electronic resources"At the top of your results page, use the dropdown menu to the right of the searchbox to limit your results to "Journals."
- Follow the links to the journal's interface page (linking to individual issues by date, volume, and number), and use your topic terms to "Search within this publication." (The search option will vary according to publisher; look for the search box.)
