Occupational Therapy: Journal Articles

This guide will direct you to information resources on the topic of occupational therapy that are available at the CCBC Libraries and elsewhere.

Finding Journal Articles

Research databases are the best way to find journal articles for your assignments. Databases contain thousands of full text articles that range from general research or review articles to very specific subject topics and research studies.

The CCBC Library subscribes to many excellent research databases. This Guide includes some of the best to use for occupational therapy.

Hint: You must allow cookies on your browser for many of these databases.


Keyword Searching

Use keywords to search for a topic

Do not use questions to search for a topic

Basic things to remember when searching:

  • Spell everything correctly.
  • Use synonyms and think of other terms to represent the concepts
  • Combine main topics with AND (for example: television AND violence)
  • Databases are not as intuitive as Google or other search engines.

Journals at Towson University

Occupational Therapy students may use Towson University's Cook Library to find occupational therapy  journal articles.

Students must go to the Cook Library. You may not use their databases or access materials off campus.

First check our databases; if we do not own the journal then consult Towson's journal list.

Remember--CCBC librarians will help you to locate materials that we do not own!
