    Search A Database Via NLB Search A Database Via NLB Presentation Transcript

    • Search a Database via the Singapore National Library Board (NLB) website
    • http://www.library.gov.sg
    •  
    • 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
    •  
    • Here are a few of the Language & Literature databases
    •  
    • 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.)
    • Let’s look for articles on The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
    • 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.
    • Two articles are found.
    • Let’s read this one.
    • Here it is...
    • Most databases let you e-mail the search results to yourself
    • Many databases will also give you the information you need for your bibliography . ( MLA is the bibliographic format you must use.)
    • Here is the e-mail I received of the results. Note that MLA style citation, ready for my bibliography.
    • Happy Searching!
