Boolean Search


A Boolean search is a type of search allowing users to combine keywords with operators (or modifiers) such as AND, NOT and OR to further produce more relevant results.

For example, a Boolean search could be "hotel" AND "New York". This would limit the search results to only those documents containing the two keywords. For a great reference on a way to search BETTER AND MORE EFFICIENTLY, use this link


CITING YOUR SOURCES:


There are a lot of websites on the internet (anyone can make a website!), and many of them are based on people's opinions, outdated data, or questionable information. It is important to be able to tell these apart from reliable sources that are current, authoritative, and accurate. In order to do this, you can apply the C.R.A.P. test for evaluating resources, which was developed by Molly Beestrum, and is used by educators and students. The link below to Evaluating Websites is to a website that delves into the specifics of how to evaluate a resource, and be sure it is something that you want to use in your research.
Evaluating WebsitesThis website, part of Colorado Community Colleges Online, explains how to evaluate websites using the C.R.A.P. test. Comprehensive and easy to understand, it's an excellent resource for teaching students to evaluate websites.
One of the most important things when writing a report or researching is to give credit to your sources. This is called CITING your sources, and the links below will help you to do that properly. PLAGIARISM is when you copy an idea or quote and do not give credit, so it is important to cite not only quotes, but paraphrased ideas as well. You can use the links below to help you ensure that you are giving credit properly and effectively.
Citing Sources with Easy BibEasy Bib has resources to check your citations, as well as information on how to properly cite in MLA and APA format.Citing in MLA FormatEverything you need to know to cite in MLA formatCiting in APA formatEverything you need to know to cite in APA format
Google Scholar: The difference between Google and Google Scholar is that Google Scholar focuses on the scholarly literature available on the Internet. Resources in a regular Google search do not have to be scholarly, and do not have to be based on research.
You can also create your own personalized Google Scholar Library. Just find an article you are interested in and click on the star icon underneath the article. You can create folders, save articles in them, and then access them later by clicking on the My Library link on the top right.
