  • So, technically the discovery layer is really just the user interface for searching (almost) all of our stuff at once: books, articles, and whatever else we decide to put in there. The ‘central index’ refers to that stuff.
  • Single search for local, open access and subscription collections.
    Should provide quick natural language searching, no more trying to figure out how librarians and each database describes something
    People get frustrated with controlled vocabulary so we’re trying to accommodate how we know people search
    Pete Coco says it best when he calls it “frictionless searching”
  • “googley familiarity” Pete Coco
  • We may decide not to include some things
    Some vendors don’t play nice with others
    Some students may still struggle with relevancy

    10. 10. 10 Research Ethics • Plagiarism - “...the wrongful appropriation or purloining, and publication as one’s own, the ideas or the expression of the ideas (literary, artistic, musical, mechanical, etc.) of an other.” – see Heterick Help Page, Also Student Code of Conduct • Copyright - intended to promote the arts and the sciences. It does this by providing authors of original literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works the ability to control how their work is used by others.
    11. 11. 11 Research Ethics • In other words, to plagiarize is to copy someone else’s work without giving him/her credit. 1 • Plagiarism is not always intentional. You can do it by accident, but it is still against the law. If you ever have 1 a question about whether something is plagiarized, please ask! 1. How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand
    12. 12. 12 Research Ethics How may I avoid plagiarizing?2 • Identify any information that would not be considered common knowledge • Unless in direct quotes, make sure you paraphrase what the original author said • Use a quote if you can’t think of a way to paraphrase the information • always, Always, ALWAYS cite the source of any information in your paper which is not considered common knowledge. If you are unsure if something is common knowledge, cite it! 2 How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand
    13. 13. 13 Research Ethics 3 So what is common knowledge Things that are found in a number of places, and are likely to be known by a large number of people. Examples: – The sky is blue – Grass is usually green – George Washington was the 1st president of the United States 3 How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand
    14. 14. 14 Research Ethics What does paraphrase mean? Main Entry: 1para·phrase 1 : a restatement of a text, passage, or work giving the meaning in another form From Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary http://www.m-w.com
    15. 15. 15 Research Ethics What does it mean to put something in my own words? 4 When you paraphrase something, it is different than putting it in your own words. When you put something in your own words, you are making a statement about the information you have found, rather than just restating the information. Usually there is an opinion of some sort in something “in your own words” 4 How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand
    16. 16. 16 Research Ethics What is a quote? • Main Entry: 1quote 1 a : to speak or write (a passage) from another usually with credit acknowledgment b : to repeat a passage from, especially in substantiation or illustration From Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary http://www.m-w.com
    17. 17. 17 Research Ethics What is a citation? • A citation is how you indicate where your information came from. • There are four citation styles that are in frequent use at the college level. They are: • MLA (Modern Language Association) • APA (American Psychological Association) • CMS (Chicago Manual of Style) • Turabian (Kate Turabian's A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 6th ed., 1996 ) • Each style has a way to do in-text citations, a way to do a bibliography, and a way to do footnotes and endnotes. • Always confirm with each instructor the style required. • You need to learn how to do citations, etc., but there is a citation software management tool available to all ONU students, faculty and staff…

Secondary sources often base their theories and arguments on the direct evidence found in primary sources. A secondary work for a subject is one that discusses the subject but is written after the time contemporary with it. • In the humanities, a primary source could be defined as something that was created either during the time period being studied or afterward by individuals reflecting on their involvement in the events of that time.
