1. In Academic Search Complete: video games = 291,497
2. Add: student learning = 765
3. Narrow further by adding: high school = 62
4. Decide whether or not to limit results by scholarly journals.
5. Search your own topic. Find a potentially useful article, and add the citation to Easybib. See the Video Tutorial below for help with this.
As you review bibliographies, reviews of literature, reference lists, you will discover additional sources to possibly use.
Doron, Rabbi Yoel1. "Using Video Games In Teaching History." Agora 51.2 (2016): 59-62. 12 Oct. 2016.
PLAN A: Use the Citation Linker tool to find electronic full text of the article in library databases.
1. Search the journal title in Citation Linker. If it's not found, none of the library's databases have content from that journal.
2. In this case, this journal may have content in full text. Use the article's citation info to know which database has the article.
3. Locate and export the article to your Easybib project. This is for practice only, so be sure to delete it when we're done.
PLAN B: If Citation Linker can't find the article in full text, search the catalog for the print version.
1. Again, search for the journal by title. If the library owns in print, check our "holdings" against your citation.
2. Go to the 3rd floor and locate the journal; organized in alphabetical order by title.
3. Scan what you need, and keep track of citations.
When the two options above fail, what can you do?
