  • Periodical Or Not

    1. 1. Is it a periodical or not?<br />Help with Noodletools<br />UW-Manitowoc Library Services<br />
    2. 2. The first thing Noodletools wants to know is this: Periodical? Or not?<br />
    3. 3. It seems like an easy question<br />These are periodicals <br />These are books, or nonperiodicals<br />
    4. 4. Periodicals are purchased through a subscription<br />They are published periodically (monthly, weekly, quarterly, annually, etc.)<br />Volume and issue numbers show the sequence of issues<br />Dates given may include month or season and year<br />Usually they compile a variety of articles written by different authors<br />They can be in print, microform, or electronic forms<br />Periodicals can include magazines, newspapers, newsletters, and journals<br />The differences are obvious, right?<br />
    5. 5. Books are bought one at a time<br />The book ends on its last page—if changes are needed, a new book (later edition) is published. <br />Some books are published in parts and have multiple volumes, but they still end (unlike periodicals, which have no known termination date) <br />Publication date is usually a single year, e.g., 2009 <br />Often represent the sustained work of one author but also can collect shorter works by several authors<br />They can be in print, microform, or electronic forms<br />Books can include pamphlets, hard-cover books, technical documents, manuals, and multi-volume reference books<br />Books or nonperiodicals<br />
    6. 6. You didn’t mention that periodicals are shiny, with lots of photos and advertisements.<br />Why not?<br />There are several types of periodicals. Not all are popular magazines.<br />
    7. 7. Noodletools lists them <br />Journal <br />Publishes scholarly, academic work<br />Magazine<br />Shiny and colorful, includes ads, popular, for the mass market<br />Newsletter <br />Documents the activities of an organization<br />Newspaper <br />Newsprint, current, covers daily or weekly events<br />
    8. 8. Take a look at the following and try to guess whether they are periodicals or not<br />
    9. 9. Periodical or not?<br />
    10. 10. Periodical or not?<br />That’s easy. The word “journal” is in the title!<br />Periodical! <br />
    11. 11. Periodical or not?<br />On second thought, nothing is that easy at the university. So I’ll also say that the articles all have different titles with different authors. Periodical!<br />
    12. 12. You’re right. It’s a periodical. The best way to develop judgment about the differences is with experience using them. So here’s another.<br />
    13. 13. Periodical or not?<br />
    14. 14. Periodical or not?<br />It’s not slick or colorful.<br />
    15. 15. Periodical or not?<br />But hey—There are two titles. One is the title of the article. One is the title of the journal. So it’s a periodical.<br />
    16. 16. I like the way you are using reason and common sense to figure it out.<br />
    17. 17. Periodical or not?<br />Sweet! It’s colorful and shiny!<br />
    18. 18. Periodical or not?<br />Not only that, but I see two titles. This is from Rolling Stone magazine. Periodical!<br />
    19. 19. Periodical or not?<br />This is just a cover. I can only guess at what’s inside.<br />Yes, without the physical item, it can be more difficult to decide. <br />
    20. 20. Periodical or not?<br />Can’t fool me. There will be no new Beowulf arriving in the mail next month. This is a book! <br />
    21. 21. Books have one title, though it may have two parts, as this does<br />Beowulf: A New Verse Translation is how the title would be written in a citation<br />Periodical or not?<br />
    22. 22. Look for these elements when analyzing a source. If you see all this, it’s a periodical: <br />Title of article<br />Title of magazine (periodical)<br />Author<br />Date<br />Page numbers<br />Volume and issue number<br />Periodical or nonperiodical?<br />
    23. 23. There are variations among the types of periodicals. Popular magazines and newspapers may not have volume and issue numbers.<br />Welcome to the wild world of periodicals!<br />
    24. 24. Periodical or not?<br />
    25. 25. This page mentions the New York Times and I know that’s a newspaper. <br />But I don’t see a date or volume number like a periodical would have. And there’s a publisher listed: Henry Holt.<br />
    26. 26. Periodical or not?<br />This page lists articles, each with its own title and author. That’s like a periodical.<br />It’s some sort of hybrid. A bookical!<br />
    27. 27. Periodical or not?<br />It’s actually called an anthology. Each article was originally published in the New York Times. The articles have been collected and reprinted in a book called an anthology or collection.<br />
    28. 28. Noodletools provides anthology as a type of nonperiodical choice<br />This kind of source can be tricky to identify at first<br />But anthologies are common sources of information<br />
    29. 29. OK, one more. This time it’s electronic, retrieved from a library database, Academic Search Elite from EBSCOHost.<br />
    30. 30. Periodical or not?<br />This looks like the photocopy of an article from a periodical. It has a volume and issue number. There are two titles: article and journal <br />
    31. 31. That was an article in pdf form. Take a look at this one in html.<br />It doesn’t look like much, but in the upper left corner it gives a volume and issue number. It’s a periodical. <br />
    32. 32. Electronic sources may not look like their paper counterpart. But you can still figure them out.<br />
    33. 33. Everything here has been explained and seems obvious, but what if I make the wrong choice when I’m doing this by myself?<br />A wrong choice in Noodletools will become apparent when the program asks you a question that you can’t answer. If that happens, just start over.<br />
    34. 34. Remember to ask your professor or a librarian for help if needed. Keep cool—you learn with each citation and it gets easier as you go.<br />Good luck!<br />
