Using EBSCO databases for Interdisciplinary Research:
Many of the database for which we provide access are provided by the vendor EBSCO and a common interface to those databases allows one to search across multiple disciplines at once. This can provide very focused searching across the literature of several disciplines, such as music and literature, or music education and psychology. The procedure below describes how to do so:
Using EBSCO databases to search across disciplines:
Go to library.case.edu and select 'Databases' from the right side of the screen. Select the database International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance.
Step 1. Click on "Choose Databases" which is immediately above the search box.
Step 2. From the popup list check "PsycINFO" which indexes the literature of psychology.
Step 3. Click OK and you will be returned to the search boxes. To check which databases you are searching at anytime, click on "Show All" above the databases.
Step 4. Your searching will now look in both databases. Once you get a results list, the bottom of the left-hand sidebar will list the number of results from each of the databases.
