Transcript

  • 1. Search a Database via the Singapore National Library Board (NLB) website
  • 2. http://www.library.gov.sg
  • 3.  
  • 4. NB: You must be a Digital Library Member of the NLB to access a database. (See the separate instructions on how to sign up.) You can access all of these databases at any National Library branch . If you are a regular Library Member of the NLB, you can access databases from home or anywhere . Sign in to your Digital Library Account
  • 5.  
  • 6. Here are a few of the Language & Literature databases
  • 7.  
  • 8. Each database interface is similar -- e.g., Basic vs. Advanced search forms, as well as Boolean (AND/NOT/OR ) options for different fields (author, title, subject, publication, etc.)
  • 9. Let’s look for articles on The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  • 10. Watch for full-text results -- they can be read, printed, e-mailed, etc. immediately. If a search result is just a citation (i.e., author, article title, and publication name), you still have to get your hands on the article.
  • 11. Two articles are found.
  • 12. Let’s read this one.
  • 13. Here it is...
  • 14. Most databases let you e-mail the search results to yourself
  • 15. Many databases will also give you the information you need for your bibliography . ( MLA is the bibliographic format you must use.)
  • 16. Here is the e-mail I received of the results. Note that MLA style citation, ready for my bibliography.
  • 17. Happy Searching!
