Event description

Description

A more advanced workshop building on the basic Introduction to Finding Resources and Referencing workshop. We will help you to identify appropriate subject-specific journal article databases in your area of interest. You will be introduced to strategies to ensure that your search is comprehensive and that the journal articles you find are relevant and manageable in number. (Note: we will not be covering advanced referencing or Zotero).

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the limitations of Library Search and be able to find and access journal articles when using the ‘Include non full-text results’ filter
  • Construct a search in a subject-specific academic database
  • Use advanced techniques to narrow and filter results for relevance
  • Understand the role and use of a thesaurus in a subject-specific database, if available
  • Know how to set about obtaining articles you may need from journals that Goldsmiths does not subscribe to, including using other libraries and inter library loans

Recommended for 3rd year Undergraduates and Postgraduate students or anyone already confident with finding resources using Library Search.
