How to Do Library Research

Personal Resource Accounts - Why & How

Why Create a Personal Account?

Many online databases and tools offer their best benefits if you create a personal account. Most will allow you to use some of their functions without a personal account, but if you create one, you can save your progress in tutorials; save articles, bookmarks or even notes that you create; save searches or create automatic new-content alerts for yourself; earn CME/CE credits; renew library books, etc. 

To Use a Personal Account :

1st Time Visiting 

Later Times Visiting 

  • Login using your ATSU login and password
    • Note: Some resources will require this every time; most mobile resources will only require it when your ATSU login and password change
  • Login again using your personal ID for that resource

Instructions for Creating Some Personal Accounts

Find Full-Text Articles for Known Citations

How to Find full-text articles for a known citation or abstract:

  • Search for the journal title in the A-Z list

    • Do not include the article title
    • Browse by year and issue to find your desired article
  • If the Library does not have the journal or journal year that you need, request it via Interlibrary Loan
    • The Library will try to get it for you for free from another library
    • It will typically take between 2-5 business days

Citation & Writing Resources

Writing Support & Resources

ATSU Writing Center offers much support and many reference documents about writing and citation.

Purdue OWL Research & Citation Resources offers guidance for research, citation, and writing for both APA and AMA styles.

APA Style Blog offers brief articles about specific citation situations for APA style.

AMA Manual of Style is the complete style guide for AMA style.

Find DOIs

DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) are permanent, unique registered identifiers that are required for APA citation of online articles.

Use CrossRef to find DOIs for your citations.

Format Citations

If you need to quickly build an APA or AMA citation, use this utility or your citation manager. 

Citation Managers

A citation manager, also called a reference or bibliographic management system, is a utility that will allow you to store all of your citations in one personal account and will generate a formatted citation list. ATSU supports several free, portable options.
