In the Jack C. Taylor Library, print copies of journals are treated two ways:
The Library receives many physical magazines and journals, some of which are NOT available through the online databases. Do a "Journal Title" search in the Library's Catalog or check in the white binder (Fontbonne Current Periodicals) on top of the shelves in the reading room to see if a journal is available in print.
Subscription resources are available to Fontbonne students, faculty, & staff. Guests are welcome to visit us the Jack C. Taylor Library. For a complete list of databases, see the Digital Resources Alphabetical List.
Use keywords to search and identify some relevant articles. Think of alternative terms or phrases for your topic (this is just a short list of possibilities):
doctor OR physician
healthcare OR "health care"
"health services" OR "health services administration"
"public health administration" OR "medical administration"
"national health services"
heath AND management
health AND facilities AND management
hospital AND management
When you've found an article that addresses your topic:
Check the Subjects used and search again using the assigned subject:
Examples: For the healthcare industry, the subject used is health care industry; for customer satisfaction in hospitals it is patient satisfaction.
Use the Advanced Search option and type the subject term (e.g., patient satisfaction) and change the field from Select a Field (Optional) to SU Subjects.
The most recent print copies of the journals below are available in the reading area on the main floor (back issues can be found in the bound periodicals on the second floor). Additional titles can be found through the databases listed to the left.
All databases are not created equal, and sometimes your search strategies can make a big difference. Use the 'Help' files at the top of the screen or ask a Librarian to maximize your results
A digital reference source is an electronic version of a reference item -- encyclopedia, dictionary, almanac, atlas, etc. - that is interactive and searchable online. Some of these reference items are also available in print in the Library - check the catalog!
