Offline Option for Library Workshops: Offline 3: Searching for Sources

Readings and Tutorials

Read or view the materials listed below and then take the quiz (link located further down the page). There is an optional section on the quiz to alert a mentor or instructor, that you name, that you satisfactorily completed the quiz (you won't be able to answer the quiz questions without doing the readings/tutorials).


Questions to consider as you work through the materials below:

  • What types of publications are likely to contain useful and reliable information for my paper?
  • How do I tell the computer to find results that contain an exact phrase of 2+ words?
  • How can I tell if a search result is available in full-text or not?
  • What do "peer-reviewed" articles look like and how do I locate them in the library?

Research Workshop 3 Quiz

If you can't attend any scheduled live Research Workshop 3, you can instead work through the readings and tutorials above, and take this quiz:

  • Quiz for Research Workshop 3: Searching for Sources (after successful completion, your name will be sent to instructor you identify in the form)
  • [Note that without a careful review of the readings and videos above you will probably not be able to answer many of the questions]
