  • NEXT  Adam2
  • Introduction

    NEXT  In this session…

  • Need to know
    How to access the Library resources off campus
    Where to find help

    What is available to you as a Middlesex Student from the Library

    Practice Searching
    I’m not going to talk for very long, we’ll get you all logged onto the computers and doing some literature searching

    Evaluating Results
    Have a quick look at evaluating results of literature searches

    Research from Uni of Huddersfield shows that correlation between library usage and good grades.

    NEXT  Why use the Library?
  • NEXT  Accessing Resources
  • UniHub – Student Portal

    NEXT  Library Subject Guides
  • Explain myUniHub > My Study > My Library

    Give a demonstration!?

    Work Based Learning Lib Sub Guide > Brings together all the resources for your subject
    Links to resources
    Help guides
    Slides from today
    Links to Learner Development Support

    NEXT  Referencing & Plagiarism
  • Referencing and Plagiarism libguide includes information on how to reference material correctly.
    Also information about LDU support and links to helpsheets.

    Referencing tutorials available on request.

    Cite Them Right

    NEXT  Reading Lists
  • Introduce reading lists

    Best via MyUniHub

    Links from Library and IT website, Library Subject Guides and also MyLearning

    Quick demo to whole group

    Type in WBS for the complete list

    Won’t link if not yet an Mdx student. But can see books to read if you can get them elsewhere.


    And then FRUIT

    What can you see in the picture…fruit

    If type ‘fruit’ into database will get millions of hits, how can you break it down ie. search for something more specific to get more manageable results

    Can you be more specific ie.
    Type of fruit: apples, oranges, bananas etc
    Location: Stall, market, outdoor market, fruit market, Britain
    Detail: boxes, signs, astroturf, prices, colour of fruit, lights, pound £ signs, special offer etc
    People in background: old, young, male, female > stall holder, customers, browsers etc

    Think of related subjects eg.
    retail, commercial, financial, point-of-sale
    Shopping, shops, fish/meat/clothes market, shopping centres, high street
    Town, city, centre, British town
    Nutrition: vits and mins

    Orange or Blackberry: fruit NOT telephone
    Apple: fruit NOT computer

    Thinking beyond the obvious, looking for the detail that might make a difference.

  • NEXT  Evaluating Resources
  • Currency: How old is this information? When was it last updated and by whom?
    Authority : Who is the author? What is their knowledge base/qualifications? How have they carried out their research?
    Intent : What is the purpose of information e.g. financial gain, propaganda, academic etc?
    Relevance : Is this what I need? Will it answer my question? Is it at the right level?
    Objectivity : Balanced view? Opposing views represented? Links to supporting information?

  • Do a demonstration – then get them logged on

    NEXT  If it’s not in the library
  • NEXT  Keeping in touch
  • NEXT  Any more questions!?
