  • You are not bothering us. This is what we are here for. We know that you’re smart and self-sufficient, but some of these resources may be new to you. We will not think any less of you if you ask for help! (IF we were judgmental people, the students we would think were dumb would be the ones who wander around and don’t get what they need because they didn’t ask for help!)
  • Use Project Muse Pdf vs. html "Never pay for information [e.g. articles] without calling me first. Chances are you're ALREADY PAYING FOR IT."

  • Always use proxy link. Explain the rest as we go
  • Subscription databases are NOT the same as websites. Some non-sub databases, too, as those provided by libraries and other academic institutions. They know what's in each item (that CLIO only knows we have). Connected with e-link. Listings by genre/format A to Z, vs. subject lists Assign people to look at: AccuNet Google Scholar Int'l bib of theatre & dance IIPA MLA Project Muse ProQuest Ten minutes for breakouts/twenty for show and tell And demonstrate/report back: TRUNCATION BOOLEAN LOGIC ADJACENCY CONTROLLED VOCAB/COLLOCATION
  • Times when the web is best. Good for current info, things in public domain, such as gov’t publications. Evaluating your results Author/Publisher Date/Currency Bias Best available?
