  • During this class I am going to give you an overview of the library & its services and teach you how to find and utilize resources including books, periodicals, databases, and audiovisuals. Stop me any time to ask a question. Get two things: Different tools for different jobs You can get help at the library
  • I’m going to teach from both the Barnard and Columbia pages because in writing your final paper, you will need to use other CU libraries in addition to Barnard's. Print exemption Zines ILL/BD
  • Please ask us for help. That is what we're here for. Tell your friends.
  • "Never pay for information [e.g. articles] without calling me first. Chances are you're ALREADY PAYING FOR IT." Dissent From Academic Search Premier Diff between scholarly and magazine: peer review, notes & bib, length, currency, audience
  • Keyword Search (use AND, OR, NOT or “”) For keyword truncation, use a question mark Do a Keyword Search for socialism in south america (46) socialism AND "south america" (21) PHRASE SEARCHING socialis? AND "south america?" (44) TRUNCATION socialis? AND ("south america?" OR venezuela? OR bolivia?) (282) BOOLEAN English only (77) LIMIT Go back to no limits. Sort newest first Full view Lehman thing—not what Barnard's specialty is #5 What’s left in Latin America? : regime change in new times Latin America--Politics and government--1980- Venezuela--Politics and gov Venezuela--Politics and government--1999- Downloading options and all that
  • Make sure they have all the concepts
  • Subscription databases are NOT the same as websites, though there is some overlap. Some non-sub databases, too, as those provided by libraries and other academic institutions. They know what's in each item (that CLIO only knows we have). Connected with e-link. Listings by genre/format A to Z, vs. subject lists Assign four groups/individuals to look at: Find Articles Google ProQuest Worldwide Political Science Abs Ten minutes for breakouts/twenty for show and tell And demonstrate/report back: TRUNCATION BOOLEAN LOGIC PROXIMITY CONTROLLED VOCAB/COLLOCATION LIMITS
