The first place that I would recommend you begin is in the Occupational Therapy Libguide at libguides.brenau.edu/OT. Once you are in the libguide you can navigate by using the tabs at the top of the page. To look for books and e-books, click on the books tab. In the center of the page you will see the widget to search the Trustee Library Catalog. I entered the search terms Occupational Therapy AND Autism and clicked on the worldcat button to begin my search. You will find that you get many good results for books and e-books using these search terms.
Next, to find scholarly journal articles, navigate to the articles tab in the libguide. In the center of the page you will see a list of recommended databases for you to use when researching Occupational Therapy topics. I decided to try Science Direct which is a databases listed towards the bottom of the Occupational Therapy Articles list. When you click on Science Direct, you will be asked for your 6 digit student ID number and the first part of your Brenau email address. After you login you will be taken to the main search page for Science Direct. I entered the terms Occupational Therapy AND Autism and limited my results by removing the check mark next to books under refine your search.
I got many good results using these search terms in Science Direct. Remember that only results with a green page symbol next to the title of the article are available full text to students here at Brenau.
We hope that this helps!
