  • We need to know this: (1) Use databases to find peer reviewed articles (2) Request full text articles from abstracts and have them delivered to your email (3) Find books using the online catalog and request delivery to Regents Center Library (4) Use Web 2.0 effectively for class assignments and literature searches (5) Use Google Scholar from the list of library databases (6) Find academic articles using Search Engines
  • Using databases to find peer reviewed articles
  • Web Retrieve If you can’t find an article or book
  • “ Get at KU” searches the libraries database collection for the specific article you want to find in full text but have found only the abstract (summary)
  • If you still didn’t get a full text article, don’t forget to select “Request a copy from Interlibrary Loan” which takes you to a form that begins the process to get your requested article FAST
  • Suggestion: you may want to open two windows so you can copy and past if the form is not populated with the article’s information.
  • The library will locate the article and send you an email with a link to the PDF article you requested (99% of the time)
  • Make the first search general Limit the results by using specific detail: scholarly journals, date published, etc. Sort results by relevance to your key words or Sort results by date for most recent articles Good results? Follow up with: Alert / Save / Share
  • Google Scholar: KU Libraries have partnered with Google to connect your search results with the Libraries databases
  • From the Libraries Home, select G for Google Scholar
  • . . . which takes you to the list of databases – select Google scholar
  • Select “Scholar Preferences.” If you are using a computer off campus you may need to Select Library: University of Kansas Libraries
  • Notice the “Get at KU.” This means that the article we see on the Google search results screen is available through the KU Libraries. And, searching legal opinions and journals for the topic “marketing ethics” gives amazing results.
  • This one article is available in 5 different databases. Take your pick.
  • Google Scholar has the option to search for Articles AND Law Reviews AND Legal Opinions. Marketing Ethics seems to be a “hot topic.” ---a good research topic.
  • Does the library have electronic journals? Yes . KU Libraries Homepage http://www.lib.ku.edu Select: E-journals Search by title of the journal Search by subject
  • Use the Library Catalog to Find Books and have them delivered to Edwards Campus
  • Searching the catalog
  • You can limit the publication to “last 5 years”
  • Simple “Key Word” search. Limit publication to last 5 years. Sort by Relevance.
  • Click on “ Recalls & Requests ” to request that this book, “Marketing ethics” be delivered to Edwards Campus from Anschutz Library on the Lawrence campus. You will be notified via your email when the book is in the Regents Center Library ready to be picked up by you so bring your KU Photo ID to check it out.
  • Look for the Research Handout and many other helpful sites on the Dissertation Research Blog: http://dissertationresearch.blogspot.com
