EL Appointment - 5:30pm - June 30: Dementia Research Speech

Resources used for this appointment

Library Subscription Databases

For Discussion

  • With this type of speech, I typically like to start with a resource that can help me define what it is.  Gale eBooks - really great resource because it has TONS of eBooks about different topics - especially reference type books (and that just means a book that gives you comprehensive facts, history, etc)
  • Next, I like to consult a resource called the sourcebook - really great reference books that define different diseases/conditions/medical topics and breaks down what it is, how/why you get it, how it is treated etc... 
  • From here, using what you learn from your eBooks, I would search for articles in either Consumer Health Complete or Academic Search Ultimate to fill in any research gaps you feel you have.
