Library Introduction Nursing 100 Library Introduction
Introduction These slides will provide a basic introduction to the librarian and library resources so you can complete the in-class session work. This is meant to give you a general background so in class we can review the research process and evaluating sources in greater depth. I will also demonstrate a search in ProQuest before you do your in-class assignment. We will not go over all of this in class, so keep this information for future reference.
Overview • Your Librarian • Library Services • Library Resources • ProQuest Search Tips • Publications in ProQuest
Your Librarian • Ms. Christina Steffy – Master of Library and Info Science, Rutgers University – B.A. Professional Writing and B.A. Communications, Kutztown University – Librarian here since October 2011 – Also an adjunct library research instructor at Reading Area Community College and a member of the Pa Library Association College and Research Libraries Division Board • Phone: 570.621.5033 • Email via Angel Learning Resources Group
Library Services • Reference – Come and see the librarian – Schedule an appointment – Email via Angel – Phone – Chat via Angel if requested • Interlibrary Loan – If we don’t have an article you need, provide librarian with citation info. Allow 1 week to receive articles. – Articles will be emailed via Angel Learning Resource Group. • Classroom information literacy sessions • Supplemental handouts for information literacy or other topics as requested
Library Resources • Books – Tip – skim Table of Contents and Index for your topic. Also look at Reference list at end of chapter or book for other sources. • Vertical files – files in filing cabinets that center on specific topics • Print journals – Tip – skim Table of Contents for your topic. Look at Reference list at end of articles for other sources. • Angel Learning Resources Group – Online Research Resources folder and other topic oriented folders have credible websites for research, including sites for professional associations. • ProQuest database • Computer lab See policies on Angel for information about circulation of resources.
ProQuest Search Tips • The following slides will introduce you to some basic search tips for doing a ProQuest search. A search will be demonstrated in class as well. • Keep in mind that these search tips can also be applied to other databases and often even to search engines like Google.
Logging In • All log in information can be found in the ProQuest folder in the Learning Resources group on Angel. • You can log in from any place, not just on campus. • Our licensing agreement with ProQuest does not place a limit on the number of people that can be logged in at one time.
Search Screen • When you log in, this is the screen you see. You may begin typing in the search box (a basic search), but I recommend an advanced search (click on “Advanced,” where I have pointed an arrow).
Advanced Search Screen Keep in mind that any limiters you set now in the advanced search could also be set later in the basic search. You can also further refine your search by setting or removing limiters in your results list.
Advanced Tips: Truncation • Use nurs* and search within the publication title to find articles that only come from nursing journals. This technique is called truncation, and we will discuss this more in class.
Advanced Tips: Boolean Operators • Boolean operators are “and,” “or,” and “not.” Choose what you want from the drop down menu the arrow points to.Use these to either expand your search (find results with x OR y) or to limit your search (find results with a AND b; find results with c NOT d). You can type these Boolean operators into basic searches and search engine searches.
Advanced Tips: Date • Choose your publication date from the drop down menu the arrow is pointing to. You may set a custom date range.
Advanced Tips: Full text; Peer reviewed • Avoid the full text limiter because your librarian can order articles you can’t get full text. Also, we may have those articles in print. • Peer-reviewed – choose this for peer-reviewed sources. We will discuss this more in class.
Results List • Notice you can still see the limiters on the right side of the screen. You can also see what article formats ProQuest offers. We will discuss these more in class.
Publications • If you already know what publication to search in, then choose “Publications” to search for the publication. You can then search for the publication by name, click on it (if ProQuest has access to it), and search within it by date.
Questions? Bring them to class.
