One of the library assignments is to complete a 10-topic exercise in searching online databases for scholarly article citations. A link to the assignment is in the box to the left. Instructions for doing the assignment are as follows:
For detailed information on using the databases to find scholarly articles on a particular topic, see below.
Go to the boxes below for helpful hints on selecting your search terms and devising a search strategy.
Before entering your terms in the search box, think about your terms and search strategy.
Using your search terms and search strategy, search for articles in the databases.
Based on your list of search terms, devise your search strategy:
teeth or tooth or dentition or dental
chimpanzees and tools
Examples of search statements with AND statement, OR statement, truncation, and parentheses.
neandert* and (tooth or teeth or dent*)
chimp* and tool*
Once you have located an article citation in one of the databases, you may be interested in linking to the full-text, if available.
Important Note: You do not need to find the full-text of articles used in the 10-topic Library Exercise or the 3 additional citations related to the Journal Article Review Exercise. The only full-text you need to find is for the article you are reviewing for the Journal Article Review Exercise.
