  • 1. LCL100/SSK13 Learning and Communication Behaviour 2009
    Tutorial exercise
    In this session you will be completing a number of tasks to help you find relevant, scholarly information resources for your group project case studies
    Task 1: Using the Swinburne catalogue to find books on your topic.
    Use the library home page www.swinburne.edu.au/lib/
    The Swinburne library catalogue lists all material held across all the campus libraries of Swinburne University.
    Select ‘Search by campus and more’ to choose search options including flagging resources by campus of your choice. This is very useful if you want to place a hold on a book which is out on loan or held at another campus to ensure that the book is sent to your campus to pick up when available. It is also very helpful if your search results are large and you need to scroll through them to find titles held at your campus (or another if it is more convenient). If you are an OUA student of course you may need to use the web form.
    From the drop down menu for campus, select Lilydale so that your search results will flag all the titles held at Lilydale.
    Searching by keyword
    Now type in the key words climate change australia into the search box.
    From the search results list, how many titles were listed? ........................
    How many titles do you get if you key in climate change Australia policy? ……………
    How do you know which ones are held at Lilydale? ………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    How do you find the call number of a book? ………………………………………………………
    There are many other search options including author, subject, title, audiovisual keyword, online tile, periodical title, my subject materials and more.
    It is always a good idea to check the catalogue for recommended readings your lecturer may have placed on Subject Materials Online. Simply select the link from the library home page and key in your subject code LCL100 or SSK13. Items may be printed books placed on Reserve for 2 hour use in the library or online readings which you can print or download.
    Task 2: Using the Swinburne catalogue to find a journal citation.
    If you are given a list of references by one of your lecturers and you need to find the full text of a journal article you can find it via the Swinburne catalogue.
    Remember, the Swinburne library catalogue does not list every individual article title and author in every single issue of all the journals we subscribe to. What it does list is every journal title and all the issues we hold whether electronic or in print format.
    So, select ‘Periodical title starts with’ as your search option to find the following citation and key in the name of the journal. (Note that libraries refer to journals as periodicals because they are published periodically such as daily, weekly, monthly etc.)
    Rock, M.T. and Angel, D.P. ‘Grow first, clean up later? Industrial transformation in East Asia’ Environment vol 49 no4 May 2007 p.8-
    In what format do we hold this journal? How many databases provide access to the issue we want? ……………………………………………………………………………………………
    Task 3: Searching databases for journal articles on a particular topic.
    When you need to find journal articles for yourself on a particular topic, databases are the best option. Databases are organised collections of information records which include citations, summaries or full text journal articles, book chapters and newspaper articles.
    The most popular database suppliers have direct links from the library home page or you can click on ‘Browse all databases’ for the complete list.
    If you don’t know which databases to use for your topic or subject, have a look at the ‘Subject starter guides’ from the library home page. They will guide you to the best online databases and web sites for your subject.
    From the library home page select EBSCOhost, then ‘Go to EBSCOhost Research databases’. Now you can choose a number of databases to search simultaneously.
    In this example we will select the following six databases:
    Academic Search Complete, Australia/New Zealand Reference Centre, Business Source Complete, Communication & Mass Media Complete, Psychology and Behavioural Sciences Collection, SocINDEX with Full text. Tick the boxes for each of these databases and then scroll down to the bottom and hit ‘continue’.
    The basic search box appears.
    Key in sport and role model and Australia
    How many articles appear in the results list? ……………………………………………………..
    The results are arranged in date order. Rearrange them in order of relevance by clicking the drop down arrow next to the Sort by button at the top of the list.
    Now look through these brief records until you find the article titled ‘Player transgressions and the management of the sport sponsor relationship’ (number 10 on my results list, but because EBSCOhost is updated daily it may be on page 2 of your results).
    By passing your mouse over the magnifying glass symbol to the right, you will be able to view the abstract or summary of the journal article.
    This article does not have a direct link to the full text but you can click the SFX button to see if any links outside EBSCOhost are available.
    List the supplier of full text for this journal article
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    In what format is the article available? ……………………………………………………………..
    You will notice that a lot of the results from this basic search are not very relevant to your topic, so let’s try an Advanced Search.

    Task 4: Using advanced search for finding journal articles on your chosen topic.
    In ‘Advanced Search’ mode you can select which fields you wish to search and you can change the Boolean operators connecting your search terms.
    This time we will look for journal articles on sport and role model/s and society. Type in each keyword as shown below. Note that the word ‘model’ has the truncation symbol, the asterisk, next to it which will bring up variations of the word stem ‘model’ to include model, models or modelling.
    Select ‘Abstract ‘in the ‘Select a field option’ box to the right of each. This search will check for your keywords in all of the abstracts (or summaries) of every journal article in the databases.
    Leave ‘and’ as your connecting option so that articles retrieved must have all of the terms present in their abstracts, i.e. the resulting articles will be about sporting role models for society.
    How many hits did you get for this search? ……………………………………………………….
    Now tick the Scholarly journals box at the right of the page under ‘Limit your results’ and hit the ‘Update Results’ button.
    How many did you get this time? ……………………………………………………………….
    Now try searching in the subject field as well as using truncation and adding another row.
    How many results did you get this time? ……………………………………………………………
    Now limit them to Scholarly (peer reviewed) and full text.
    How many did you get this time? ..............................................................................................
    Spend some time now searching for articles on your chosen topic for your case study.
    Select one of the articles that you will use for your assignment, and cite it as you would for a bibliography or reference list according to the Harvard system citation guide. You can access an electronic version of the guide under the ‘Research help’ section of the Library home page.
    Don’t forget, you will need to cite the article as a journal article in a database.
