Today we discussed searching (and finding!) in library catalogs. We discussed the CUNY library catalog, the Library of Congress Classification Outline, WorldCat, and reviewed LibX, a browser add-on to make your searching more efficient.
On Wednesday, we’ll discuss searching in library databases. Please read Badke, chapter 5 (pp. 94-120). Since databases have great potential for your discover of relevant, high-quality scholarly sources, here is a quick preview:
- Off-campus access help
- Review Badke, 118-120 and DO the practice exercises
- Try these databases: Academic Search Complete, Lexis-Nexis, Opposing Viewpoints, Communication & Mass Media Complete
Remember, the due date for the annotated bibliography is now Friday, November 1. Please email your assignment to me as an attachment by noon that day
