The Key to This Library Guide


Start with a Source Evaluation refresher. You should have completed the Source Evaluation module, and this refresher gives you a specific tool (the 5Ws) to use as you look at both web and Galileo sources!

STEP 2: 

Under the "Worthy Charity Essay" page, take a look at the information on the Google v Galileo tab. It's important to know which one to use when you're looking for different kinds of information.


Take a look at the information on the Search Strategies tab - the basic building block for doing good research. We will talk about this in our session, so this page is here for you to refer to whenever you need it.


Next take a look at the Web Resources tab. This will help you find web-based information about your specific charity.


Finally, use one of the databases on the Galileo Resources tab to search for information about the issue or focus of your charity. You might not find articles about your specific charity, so choose those issues as your keywords instead of the charity name.
