SESSION 1

 

STEP 1:

Review the TYPES OF SOURCES tab. This will help you understand the different types of sources you may encounter when you start searching in Galileo.

STEP 2:

Next, watch the Galileo video on the Articles tab. That will help you become familiar with some Galileo basics like saving sources, navigating the results list, and locating citations.

STEP 3:

The BOOKS (GIL-Find) tab is the best place to search for books. When you need deep, long-form information about topics like people or theories, books can be a great option. 

STEP 4:

Complete the POST TEST SESSION 1 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!

The ARTICLES (Galileo) tab is your one-stop-shop for finding articles. As you're looking for excellent material, remember what you learned about sources and searches! PROTIP: Save your articles by emailing it to yourself or copying the permalink!

If you're not sure how to do a basic search in Galileo, look at the SEARCH STRATEGIES tab. It has a lot of useful info about building a great keyword search.
