3 Develop a research question Research Strategy Think of keywords Choose a resource to search Look for information Read Evaluate the information you find Modify your search Take notes Cite sources

4 Develop a research question Research Strategy DEVELOP A RESEARCH QUESTION A good way to begin your research is to locate and read short articles that will give you a broad overview of a topic. You can find these articles in a variety of reference materials. Browse books, articles, web sites, and course textbooks Watch/read the news Browse through encyclopedias Specialized/Subject Specific Dictionaries Almanacs Handbooks Biographical Sources

5 Think of keywords Research Strategy THINK OF KEYWORDS What is a keyword? A keyword is any searchable word in an online record. State your topic as a question. Determine what words best describe your topic. Example: How did New Deal programs influence the arts in America? Keywords: New Deal United States Depression Art Federal Aid to the Arts

6 Choose a resource to search Research Strategy CHOOSE A RESOURCE TO SEARCH Depending on your topic, different types of resources (the web, newspapers, magazines, journals, books, etc.) may be more appropriate than others. You need to be aware of what kind of information is in each type of resource and who is the intended audience. Books Reference Sources Scholarly journals Popular Magazines Newspapers Web Time frame At least 1 year several years after the event Several months years after the event Several months years after the event 1 week - 1 month after the event 1 day - 1 week after the event Immediate 7 yrs Audience General public - scholars, researchers, and students General public, specialists Scholars, researchers, and students General public General public General public - scholars, researchers, and students Examples: Negotiating ethnicities in China and Taiwan; The Press of Ideas; Women & Art Dictionary of Art; World Book Encyclopedia; World Almanac Journal of Child Development; Radical pedagogy, etc. Time; Newsweek; National Geographic The New York Times; Washington Post; Wall Street Journal CNN, Entertainment weekly, Amer. Med. Asn

7 Look for information Research Strategy LOOK FOR INFORMATION Begin your search by looking at these various resources. Books Journals, magazines Newspaper articles Articles in Books Bibliographies CUNY+ catalog; Public library catalogs; WorldCat database CCNY Library Databases A-Z CCNY Libraries Databases A-Z EBSCOHOST, Lexis-Nexis, New York Times Historical CUNY+ catalog; WorldCat database A list of resources about a particular topic. Bibliographies can be found in books and journal articles. Book reviews Government Documents A criticism of a book or article. Book reviews can be found in Choice; Library Journal; Publisher s Weekly, etc. Books, journal articles, reports, statistics

8 Read Research Strategy Evaluate the information you find READ & EVAULATE THE INFORMATION YOU FIND Quantity - Enough resources are needed to support your argument. Diversity - Variety is necessary. Include many different resources. Date of Publication - When was the source published? Quality and Reliability - What is the purpose of the publication? What is the author saying? What are the author s conclusions? Does the author agree or disagree with other authors who have written on the same subject?

9 Modify your search Research Strategy MODIFY YOUR SEARCH Make sure that the topic you have chosen is not too big. Narrow your topic and focus on an aspect of the subject that interests you. Write your topic down as a clear statement will to help guide you during your research.

10 Take notes Research Strategy TAKING NOTES Skim through your books and articles to get the main ideas. Make notes of the important points. Use index card system for recording notes. Be sure to put the page number and author of the source on each note card. When you are taking notes, try to make them as short as possible. Record facts that refute your thesis as well as support it.

11 Cite sources Research Strategy CITE SOURCES Whenever you quote, paraphrase, summarize, or otherwise refer to the work of another, you are required to cite its source, either by way of parenthetical documentation or by means of a footnote. Offered here are some of the most commonly cited forms of material. RefWorks MLA Style: Documenting Sources from the World Wide Web by the Modern Language Association of America Electronic Reference Formats Recommended by the American Psychological Association by the APA Online! Citation Styles by A. Harnack and E. Kleppinger Internet Citation Guides

12 Getting Journal Articles Most older journals are located on the first floor of Cohen Library A majority of our journals for the last twenty years are available electronically.

13 Accessing Databases From the City College Library home page click Articles via databases link.

14 Accessing Databases Select your database.

15 Proxy Account Searching when off-campus Fill in your address and create a password. First time users and those who have forgotten their password will be asked to enter their barcode number.

16 Proxy Account Searching when off-campus Next you will be asked to type in your name, , and create a password. When you access the databases the next time you will only have to type in your and password.

17 Principles of Searching

18 Principles of Searching Similar ideas are expressed in a word with different endings. educat* will retrieve all of these words educate educating educated education, etc. The asterisk * is a wild card or truncation symbol. All words starting with the letters before the asterisk will be retrieved

19 Boolean Logic, What is it? Boolean Logic was created in 1888 by mathematician George Boole. Boolean Logic consists of several logical operators. These operators consist of the terms AND, OR, and NOT.

20 Where and Why it Should be Used Boolean logic can be used when searching on the City College libraries databases and the Internet. This particular search technique allows you to broaden and narrow your search so that you receive a higher amount of relevant information.

21 Boolean Searching ESL OR ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE Anything in either of these circles Is recovered ESL ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE

22 Boolean Searching Combine search terms OR yields the most results

23 Boolean Searching AND makes your search more specific Only the overlap of the circles are recovered ESL BILINGUAL EDUCAT*

24 Boolean Searching Same combined search terms AND yields less results but articles are more specific.

25 Boolean Searching Add a third search term Even fewer results are presented.

26 Boolean Searching Changed the Boolean operator to NOT and changed Educat* to teacher*. Even fewer results are presented because I have made my search more specific.

27 EBSCOHOST EBSCOhost Premier is a portal to 30 databases providing indexing and abstracting for tens of thousands of scholarly journals, magazines, and reference sources in all areas of study. Many of these databases include full text articles.

29 EBSCOHOST Enter your terms in the Find field. You can use Boolean operators (and, or, not) with a standard search. If available, field codes and search history may be used with your search.
