You might want to try searching Google for restearch papers you
need (if you know the title, author and pubpication information).
In my case, being an engineering student, I just use Google to
find articles and websites that I need, or use Bookshare to find
books that I need (to read on my BrailleNote). For instance, if
I type "explain vectors in C plus plus," I get hundreds of
websites explaining what a vector (a vector is a variable which
can be used to store more than one data) is and how to use it.
Or if I have to write something about math, I just use Google to
find things (which turns out to be very beneficial).
Hope this helps.

>I am in the midst of writing a paper, and am using my school's
data bases. I am finding that it's hit or miss with the data
bases (somee have full text, some don't, some full text appears
as PDF images which won't be read by my screen reader, and some
articles I want, have no full text at all). How do people go
about doing research? What are the most time effective methods
for all involved?
