OU Libraries Session for DYUI Classes

I recorded this video for the 2020 — 2021 online classes. In the video, you'll learn about Discover's filtering options and other features that will help you find sources more quickly, two databases that are great for find quality sources for most research topics, and a browser extension that will connect you to full text articles while you are searching in Google Scholar or other academic websites.

Getting Started Databases

The databases listed below are great starting points for most research topics! You can access them from this research guide, or you can save them to your My Library Page on the OU Libraries' website.
