Hi Dena ~
I suggest checking out the databases available via the library's webpage (www.sru.edu/library). On the left-hand side of the page, you will see Articles/Databases. This link will take you to an alphabetical listing of the databases available. To help you find information pertinent to your topic I suggest utilizing the Resources by Subject link (it is the fourth choice down on the left side under Research on the page). Here, you can select a department that will provide you with databases that relate to your topic.
As a sample, I selected Nursing from the Resources by Subject page and selected Academic Search Complete as my database. This database is housed in EBSCO. Once I was in the database, I typed children AND cancer into the search line and found over 33,000 results. You can add terms to your search to be more specific, for example: children AND cancer AND treatment, and you can always limit your results using the options provided by the vendor (in this case EBSCO) that are located on the left side of the results page. Here, you can limit by year of publication, full-text, scholarly, etc.
Should you need additional help, feel free to call the Reference desk for direct assistance at 724.738. 2641 or stop at the library if you are on campus. The Research Services desk is located in the Reference area of the first floor. A librarian is on duty until 9:00 PM this evening and 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM tomorrow.
Best of luck with your search! And again, don't hesitate to follow-up if more assistance is necessary.
