At the library, we love to answer questions and make sure everyone has the sources/information that they need!
If you have questions or aren't finding the sources you'd like to have for this project, you can either email your subject librarian Amanda directly or by using the book a librarian form below to set up a quick call or visit:
To navigate into each of the 5 modules we'll be working through today, use the blue columns on the left-hand side of this page.
We will mostly be using an education database called ERIC today but I also provided some information about Search at UW in case you would like to use that resource for this assignment. You will see these both mentioned briefly in Modules 1-3 before we learn more about using them in Modules 4 and 5.
Outline for Today's Visit:
1. What Makes a Good Source? What are Scholarly/Peer-Reviewed Journals?
2. Building and Revising Your Search
3. Evaluating the Information in Your Results
4. Using ERIC
5. Optional: Expanding to Search at UW (If you're not getting enough results from ERIC/prefer using Search at UW)
