The intent of your instruction session and this guide is to provide you with assistance with researching your topics. During the session, I will cover the following areas:
- Formulating your search strategy
- Searching the catalog and other databases, including the differences between them
- Finding material once you have a citation
- Reading a bibliography and citation
Hopefully at the end of this session you will have a better understanding of how to do your research. If you encounter any difficulty along the way, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me or my colleagues.
