I would suggest starting by going to the library catalog. You can get to the library catalog by going to the library homepage at library.brenau.edu. In the search box, I typed the search terms Distracted Driving AND Cell Phones. Be sure to connect your keywords with the word AND. You will find many good results here. In particular, look at result number one Cell phones and distracted driving : selected research. To look at this book click on the Access Online button. You will be asked to login using your six digit student ID number and the first part of your Brenau email address, so everything before the @tiger. Once you have gotten into the book scroll down until you see the table of contents. You can put the page number of the chapter that interests into the box at bottom of the page to be taken to that page in the book. You can also use the arrows at the bottom of the screen to move forward and backward through the book.
If you need to find a scholarly journal article you will want to go to one of the library databases. You can do this by going to the library libguides at libguides.brenau.edu/allpurpose. Once you are in the libguide, choose the Journal Articles tab. Next, choose a database. For this topic I recommend Academic Search Complete. Click on Academic Search Complete and login if you have not already. Click on the full text and scholarly peer reviewed buttons to the bottom left of the search bar. Then, enter your search terms. I tried the same search terms that I used in the library catalog and I found many good results. If you are interested in an article, click on the title of the article. On this page you will be able to read the abstract of the paper. You can also email the article to yourself on this page by clicking on the envelope symbol to the right of the page. If you are interested in reading the full text of the article click on PDF full text link to the left.
