Book your Personal Research Session!
Deadline is Friday, November 8th to complete your personal research session with a ZSR Librarian & bring a signed business card to Prof. Giovanelli.
Use quotation marks around a phrase to retrieve results that include the exact phrase - for example "body image" or "genetic engineering" or "third culture kid".
When searching for a keyword with multiple variations (ex. "child", "children", "childhood", etc.) use the root form of the word with an asterisk (the little * symbol). Using child* will retrieve all keyword variations-- child, children, childhood.
Be specific: A search for child* and media and violence is much better than one for television violence
Use the various ways of limiting a search that appear on your results screen - most interfaces let you limit by publication date, subject, format and more. Use these to narrow your results list as much as possible.
If you are having difficulty at any point in the research process, your friendly ZSR Librarians are here to help!
