OT 634: Research and Evidence in Clinical Practice

Hunting Down Articles

Here's a little exercise to practice figuring out how to get access to an article through the library. These are all articles that OT students in the last year have reached out to me about figuring out how to get access to. 

Does Collins Library have access to these articles? Briefly describe how to access each.

  1. Chu, S. (1996). Evaluating the sensory integrative functions of mainstream schoolchildren with specific developmental disorders. British Journal of Occupational Therapy59(10), 465-474.

Past OT Theses

Looking to the past for inspiration? Check out the OT theses and capstone projects from years past! We've got them online in Sound Ideas dating back to 2010, and on the 3rd floor of the library going waaay back. You can search for an individual thesis by author or title in Primo Search, and then make an appointment with Pavel to check out a physical copy.
