ONLINE DATA BANKS
before coming to college I had to deal with libraries but more so
the crotchety librarians that work at these monuments to education.
Now I have the pleasure of working with online databanks that IUPUI
has generously bestowed upon its students. IUPUI breaks down each
data bank into categories which is the first of many refinements
one can have in their pursuit of the appropriate information.

INSIDE A DATA BANK
Once inside a user has the option to further refine his/her search
-full text articles
-peer review/unreviewed articles
you may also limit the dates to:
-within the last 12 months
-or even specific dates
all the way to document type or physical description
These options allow the user to fully get where they need to be

access them are a student ID and a willingness to learn.
From this assignment I learned a great deal about how important it is to know
how to make a non linear power point. First I didn’t think it would make a difference
but soon realized that it gets the viewer much more involved in what they are looking at
as well as making it more fun for me the creator.
Before this assignment I had no idea that a calculator had the capability to
speak Chinese or to have a day planner as well.
Finally I learned about my own capability to learn about a program and
effectively utilize its components to make for a joyous learning experience.
