Library & Online Research

A Toolkit to Help You Suceed


    • Need to expand your basic research toolkit?  
    • Are you ready to figure out how to move beyond simple Google and Wikipedia searching to find sources that will make your college professors smile?
    • Then this guide is for you.


We have a Five-Point Strategy to Help You.

#1 - Replace Google searches with All-Knight Search and Google Scholar searches

#2 - Follow the citation trail to find additional gems

#3 - Target peer review publications and  save time by reading abstracts

#4 - Use Google to help brainstorm about keywords for your topic and to check an author's credibility

#5 - Meet a reference librarian -- you will have a major resource to help you survive and succeed


(Tip of the hat to Project Information Literacy for help identifying this strategy.)
