MAT-525_History and Theory: Getting Started

Getting started

  • Searching the web: Gather the general  information first since that will inform the course of the rest of your research. 
    • Google & Google Scholar: use for demographic information
    • Wikipedia: Use their Reference and Bibliography sections to find primary source material
  • Finding authors in PsycINFO: Once you have the basic information about the art therapist, you may begin to dive deeper into your research.  Information such as the art therapist's theory of choice, population, setting, and influences may be found in the things that they have written or in biographies about the art therapist. 
  • Finding full text articles
    • Search Journals & Ebooks to see if a resource is available through Adler. Be sure to search by title of journal, not title of article
    • Using Interlibrary Loan: More information on how to request items from other libraries.
