Welcome to the SJSU Health Literacy Research Guide
“Health Literacy: the capacity to obtain, communicate, process, and understand basic health information and services to make appropriate health decisions.” (http://www.cdc.gov/healthliteracy/learn/index.html)
Your Library Account is the same as your SJSU One Account (Student/Faculty ID # and your SJSUOne Password)
You will need to set up the following accounts in order to help you with your research:
1) Citation managers, such as Zotero, and Paperpile, are programs that allow the users to collect, organize, and cite sources. They also allow for collaboration, and some provide the ability to store and annotate PDFs within the system.
2) Your SJSUOne credentials work for Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad). Request non-SJSU Library owned or subscribed content through this free service. Allow 3-10 days for articles and up to two weeks for books.
3) Customize Google Scholar to search SJSU holdings (for full-text articles) and to export citations to a citation manager such as Paperpile. You can also access the Google Scholar tab on the home page of the library's website, which will automatically connect your search results with links to the full-text articles in the library's databases.
