IC Exercise (FCCS 1100)
These are the questions that will appear on your pre and post tests. Your instructor will give you the actual test sheets. All questions are 10 points each, and there is ONLY one correct answer for
each. Please note that some of the questions have two or more parts to
them, so you will need to answer these questions as thoroughly as possible.
1. I have been asked to write a paper on Munchausen syndrome
and all the books pertaining to that disorder at GHC are
checked out. Are there other libraries in the University System of
Georgia that have books on Munchausen syndrome? If so, how many books are
listed in the Universal Catalog that would be highly relevant
to this subject?
2. I am taking an English 1102 class and I have to find peer-reviewed,
scholarly journal articles that contain criticisms of William
Faulkner's novel, "Sanctuary." I've been told that MLA
International Bibliography in GALILEO is a good place
to look. Using that database, how many full-text, peer-reviewed articles
can I find on the aforementioned topic?
3. I am trying to find a full-text newspaper article on Fernando
Alonso, the famous Formula One Grand Prix driver. I believe that
the article I am looking for appeared in the Irish Times
on October 16, 2009. The article alleges that a
particular driver from Team Renault deliberately wrecked his car during a race
in Singapore so that Alonso, who was leading at the time, could win the
race. What is the title of this newspaper article, and who was the driver
accused of crashing his car to help Alonso win?
4. I am taking a Georgia History class and my professor
wants me to use a particular database in GALILEO that features encyclopedia-type
articles on various persons in Georgia History. I have to find
some information on "Ma Rainey." Specifically, I need to find
her actual name, where she was born, the name of the recording company that she
signed a contract with, the year she died, and what she died from?
5. According to the latest MLA format style, found on the
GHC Library Home Page, how should I list the following printed book
on the Works Cited page? Author: Hiram P. Bell.

History Museum. Date website was created: 2008. Web address:
7. My physics professor wants me to read a particular peer-reviewed journal
article on aviation and physics. The
article has something to do with "atmospheric turbulence." It
was published in 2009, and I think he said he saw it in GALILEO's
Research Library database. Anyway, I have to read the article
and tell him what E.D.R. means.
8. I need to find the link on the GHC Library's Home Page entitled Research
Guides. Under that link, I have to find the guide for Philosophy,
and look up a quote that sums up the meaning of Stoicism.
What does the quote say?
9. If you go to the GALILEO database, World News
Digest, you can find news articles dating back to 1940. In 1964,
in Philadelphia, Mississippi, three civil rights workers were murdered.
On Oct. 20, 1967, seven men were convicted of those murders. One of the
convicted men was the chief deputy sheriff of Neshoba County. What was
10. In the new GHC GIL-Find catalog, you can use the Advanced

Hours," by Dean Koontz. What is the title of the second book?
