Using Cross Search

Cross Search

CrossSearch is the University of Dundee’s database for journal, magazine and newspaper articles. It’s useful for quickly surveying what’s available in a particular area, then accessing PDFs or physical copies of things you’re interested in.

Using CrossSearch for the first time can be tricky but once you’re used to it, it’s a piece of cake. The trick really is to select the right database, then choose useful key words to search for.

I’ve put a tutorial on using Cross Search elsewhere on the site – follow this link.

You’ll probably need to use Cross Search either for assignment 5, or for next semester’s research project – so take some time to go through the tutorial and have a practice run with it.
