Learning Outcomes for Today's Library Session

By the end of this class you will be able to:

  • Manage your research topic
  • Discover and develop good search terms
  • Find and use relevant databases

Your Assignment

Find scientific literature (at least three sources) that show the significance of a health problem.

Why Can't I Just Google It?

Why not just use Google for your research projects?

  • Often more time consuming than using library databases
  • First few results are from commercial sites or Wikipedia
  • Sometimes hard to establish the authority of the site
  • You will miss out on the 'good' stuff
