This guide will provide pointers to resources addressing the topic of Gerontology from many perspectives.


Each tab presents tools and methods to discover various types of information ... books, journals, news, data sets, professional materials, etc.

For comprehensive searching of this interdisciplinary topic, one will need to utilize both general tools and a number of discipline-specific tools that will provide deep coverage of the various research communities.

For instance, Academic Search Complete will provide the fulltext for a core set of interdisciplinary journals and magazines, but in-depth journals and other publications will only be discovered using subject tools such as CINAHL, PsycInfo, Business Source Complete, and Scopus (for the broadest interdisciplinary coverage).
