WRTG 393 students,
The following task is designed to expand your familiarity with UMUC’s Information and Library Service’s OneSearch function.
As with the previous two library tasks, completing this exercise will help inform your research for the white paper in our class.
Please watch library tutorial #3. The tutorial is linked to at the top of the list of Content items for this week.
After you have watched the tutorial, please complete the following tasks.
1. Conduct a keyword search on a topic that interests you. You can conduct the same search you made in one of our previous library exercises if you would like.
What word or phrase did you search on?
How many search results do you get?
2. Follow the instructions provided on the video and select a new database on the right-hand side of your screen. Then answer the following questions:
What database did you select?
How many search results did you get after adding this database?
3. Next, locate the research guide for your major. If you have not declared a major yet, please select one from that interests you from the options from the drop-down menu.
Peruse the research guide for that major. Describe to the rest of the class in a few sentences any interesting resources you discovered.
If you have the same major as another student in the class, this would be a great time to collaborate and share any resources you found with which others might no be familiar.
