Where to start

FLITE has a number of choices for those times when Wikipedia just won't cut it as you learn more about your topic.

You can look in CREDO Reference, which covers topics just like Wikipedia, and then move on to databases.

Please take the following Library Research Skills Assessment to see how much you have learned over this semester:

Combining your keywords

Suggestions to help you search:

  • Combine key nouns/short phrases of your search with AND or OR.
    Example: Instead of searching Facebook social networking try searching Facebook AND social networking.
    (See video below)

  • Come up with synonyms.
    Example: If you can't find anything for dating, try human courtship.
     
  • Need peer-reviewed journal articles? On the results screen, click on the Peer-Reviewed Journals tab
     
  • Spelling! Remember that computers are picky about it. A single misspelled word can mean the difference between great results and no results at all.
    Need to check your spelling?
     
  • Ask for help.
    All the librarians in FLITE were hired to make your life easier. We can't do that unless you bring us your questions.
