Connecting Google Scholar to the Foley collection
Would you like to access Google Scholar content through Foley Library? Here is how!
LOOK AT THE WHOLE SCREEN FIRST. Before you start searching in an unfamiliar database, look at the whole search screen first. What search tools are available to you? Are there check boxes, limiters, subject headings, indexes, a link to get help?
KEEP IT SIMPLE.Search with only the most necessary keywords from your topic and don't use all of them at once. Example (keywords in italics): What are the effects of global warming on the animals in national parks? You might want to get more specific and search for: climate change, wildlife, Yellowstone.
FIND A FEW (2-3) RELEVANT ARTICLES.You don't need to start with 20 articles; find a couple of very relevant ones and read those first.You may discover other topics, authors or references or you may decide to change your topic.
SEARCH USING SUBJECT HEADINGS. Browse a database’s Thesaurusor list of Subject Terms to find subject headings relevant to your topic OR use a subject heading link in an article record to search for more articles with that heading. The Using Subject Headings tutorial below explains it better.
