Research Tips from Caroline

Research Tips from Caroline G.

1. Paper and pencil.  Write things down.  Look for common keywords, authors, phrases.  Use these to search for articles in library subscription databases.

2. Read.  Email citations to yourself; these will have links back to the database and the possible link to FT.  You may need to read over ten articles to find three good ones.

3. Interlibrary Loan:  this is an option for articles and books we don't own or have access to through a subscription.

4. Set up DePauw access to your instance of Google Scholar.  Watch the recording on the LibGuide.

5. Consider using EndNote Basic or Zotero to organize your citations.  See the companion LibGuides for each of these tools to explore and create an account. 

6. Email Caroline to set up a research consultation.  Don’t struggle – ask for help.  Also available: Online Chat via the Libraries home page (with a Peer Research Consultant).
