  • For today’s class we will assume we are looking at the Reading List for FISHING - FSH101.
  • This is a sample of a course reading list. It contains the books, book chapters and journal articles that you would normally find on any one of your reading lists. Look at the first reference – Crab and Lobster Fishing. This is a book. The author is A Spence. It was published in the year 1989. Its title, written in italics, is Crab and Lobster Fishing. It was published by fishing News in Farnham.This format (author, date, title, place of publishing and publisher) is the one used in the reading lists.[This would be a good place to put a couple of Captivate quizz questions: what is another book on the list? Who is the publisher Undewater fishing in Australia and New Zealand? Who is the author of ?]Now, we’re going to identify a journal article. Item 4 is a reference to a journal article. How can we tell? You’ll notice that there are two “titles”: the one in italics, Australasian Accounting Business & Finance Journal, is the journal title. Journals are the academic version of magazines. A magazine title would be Who Weekly. Journals and magazines are made up of lots of articles.Our journal article is identified by the journal title, and the article title. In this instance, the article is “Sustainability reporting in fishing industry management – regulations versus voluntarism.”To find a magazine article, we would need to know the year and the date of the volume that the article was in.With academic journals, we need to know the volume and the issue numbers. These are the numbers (2 and (3)) after the journal title. The final numbers are the page numbers (133-148, here)[This would be a good place to put a couple of Captivate quizz questions: Find another journal article; etc]So, when you look for a journal article, the starting point is always the journal title, and the starting place is the library catalogue. You’ll find books on a shelf in the library, but Journal articles are stored online, in databases. More on this later.To complicate things, sometimes your reading list will have a book chapter or journal article that we don’t own. In these cases, the library stores copies of these chapters or articles online, hyperlinked from the library catalogue, in our eReserve. Item 8 – the article from CoEvolution Quarterly– is an eReserve article.
  • You’ll find more explanation of the call numbers in the LibGuide titled I’m new to the library.
  • So, you should now be able, with a bit of practice, to find a book if you know the title.Journal articles are different. We need to talk about what journals are.Before the computer age, journals were published in big volumes and stored on the library shelves. Today, journals are electronic resources, i.e. they are published online in digital format. At USC, we only purchase electronic versions. Journal articles are found in journals, which are stored in online databases. To find an article, we need to start by finding the journal. The simplest way to find the journal is to start with Journals Titles button.

Item 8 – the article from CoEvolution Quarterly– is an eReserve article.
  • NB – if you choose Academic Search Elite (or any other EBSCO database), note two things: The article is quite deep in the volume. So, browse to the correct volume, then “search within” that volume. When you get to the article, you’ll notice that it uses the Article Linker.Simplest to go to Proquest, but some students will explore the top option. Use it to explain the variety of possibilities when you’re searching databases.
  • Find guides about what we learned today: Find course readings
  • The librarians are rostered for the Information Desk to help you with questions related to finding books etc via the library catalogue They also can help you with the more challenging task of learning how to find scholarly publications that are stored in the online databases. You’ll find that the librarians can help you in a wide variety of ways.
