The Key to This Library Guide

STEP 1: 

Become familiar with Galileo. It's a search tool, just like Google! Learn *why* it's better than Google, and play around with the tools it offers, like doing a basic search, scrolling through results, and saving sources.


Research is key, and that means Understanding Galileo.There is a lot of great stuff on these pages - take advantage of them!

  • Filters/Limiters: your best friend when you need to narrow down your results
  • Boolean: a way to put your keywords to work for you
  • Advanced Searching: Galileo's Advanced Search makes using Boolean easy-peasy
  • Navigating Galileo: a picture is worth a thousand words

STEP 3: 

Finally you'll need to create citations for all the great sources you found. The Works Cited tab will help you there!


At the end of the semester, take the quick library assessment. It lets us know how we're doing as instructors and how you're doing as students!
