INFORMATION LITERACY LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of information literacy instruction, students should be able to:

  1. Recognize the different characteristics of popular and scholarly sources.
  2. Identify appropriate library databases for specific research needs. 
  3. Refine and narrow searches using built-in database limiters. 

Library Guide Helpful Tips!

You'll be using GALILEO resources for this project, and there are several useful pages on this guide.

STEP 1:

First up is the OED information for your OED Assignment. This introduces you to the online OED and how to navigate it!

STEP 2:

You have to use a scholarly sources for your annotated bibliographies, so next up is a quick reminder about the difference between scholarly (or peer reviewed) sources and popular sources.

STEP 3:

Next stop is all the content under the USING GALILEO tab. If you don't remember much about basic search strategies, first take a look at the SEARCH STRATEGIES page. It will give you a good refresher on how to build a strong keyword search.

STEP 4:

The next big piece in Galileo is using LIMITERS, sometimes called FILTERS! They're great for narrowing down your results. There's also a page explaining all the stuff you see on a main Galileo search results page. 

PROTIP: If you decide to use the main Galileo search, the limiters will be your best friend!

STEP 5:

Next, take a look at the recommended subject specific databases that will help you focus your research in the best places. Sometimes it is easier to go to an individual database than it is to search All of Galileo In Time and Space.

STEP 6:

Complete the quick ASSESSMENT on the last tab. That helps us do a better job every time we teach. Thanks! And as always, contact me if you have any questions at all!
