Went to the "find books and articles" on the library page. Searched all the databases by subject area. Selected the subject area of "business" in the drop down menu. Demonstrated how to search by keywords, "leadership" AND "theories" and phrases
such as "leadership theories" OR "great man theory" in parenthesis. Found a good number of articles in the ABI Inform database. Student and Librarian went over mailing articles to oneself by clicking on mail envelope icon. Suggested searching other business databases as well. Printed out page of relevant hits for patron to search at a later time. Reviewed search sequence with patron so they could do additional searching once home.  Reminded patron to check the great number of citations at the end of the articles which referred us to more sources for this specific topic.
