           The following topics are pointed out in the library session:

 

  • Research Strategies: A Five-Step Guide -- currently has  tips for how to get started, find sources, write, and cite using the databases interface.  This semester we have a brand new discovery system
  • called OneSearch .  OneSearch will search 150 databases and retrievals can be modified in different ways which will be demonstrated in class. 
  • Databases by Subject to identify useful databases. Most databases offer Find Text find text image link for each record which helps you identify if CSUN owns the item. If CSUN does not own the item, it will offer a link to the ILL loan service.
