EADP 4060: Technology in Emergency Management: Journal Articles

A guide to library resources for EADP 4060

Suggested databases

Search terms

When searching a database for journal articles, your search terms should be fairly focused.  For example, you could use different variations of the following search terms:

  • drones and emergency management
  • weather monitoring technologies
  • technical applications and disaster relief
  • social media and disaster preparedness
  • wireless applications and disaster recovery

Unlike Google, the library databases require that you eliminate "stop" words from your query. Stop words are words such as: a, of, the, in, on.  Natural language usually doesn't produce favorable results in database searches.  Instead choose one or two words or brief phrases and separate them by the word "and".
