Q. How do I find articles for information technology (IT)?
To find IT articles you can use the search box on the library homepage (https://studentlogin.aiuniv.edu/portal/5/library/pages/libraryhome.aspx), but I would suggest visiting the Find Articles and eBooks link at the top-left of the library homepage and choosing an IT-specific database to search in. ACM Digital Library, IEEE XPlore, and ABI Inform Collection are our primary IT databases and cover most IT subject areas.
You should consider what information you are looking for and form that into a question (Such as: “Do ticket systems improve problem management?”).
Take that question and identify the key subjects, then use those as search keywords. (Example: ticket, information technology, problem management). In your search results, there are filters to the left. You can use those to limit to Journal Articles. You may also need to search a few times using words that mean similar things to those you have already used. (For example, instead of ‘problem’ you might use ‘issue’).
