  1. Scholarly Research Engineering Division Main Library allison.dolland@sta.uwi.edu 662 2002: Extensions: 2244; 3594 http://www.mainlib.uwi.tt/

  2. Objectives At the end of this seminar you will be able to: Distinguish the complexity and range of available resources Evaluate and select the appropriate sources Develop effective search strategies Formulate the correct approach to citing sources

  3. Primary Information Sources Personal correspondence (including emails) Diaries Manuscripts Works of art and literature Speeches Oral histories Interviews A primary source provides direct or firsthand evidence about an event, object, person or work of art. They are generally contemporary to the events and people described and may be written and non-written, the latter including sound, picture, and artifact. Examples: • Company documents and reports • Newspaper ads and stories • Census or demographic records • Specimens (Plant, animal, etc) • Hearings (e.g. legislative proceedings) • Audio and video recordings • Photographs and posters

  4. Secondary Information Sources A secondary source, in contrast, lacks the immediacy of a primary record. As materials are produced sometime after the event, these sources contain information that has been interpreted, commented, analyzed or processed in such a way that it no longer conveys the freshness of the original. • Text books, Handbooks, Directories • Book Reviews • Encyclopedias • Serial articles (journals, newspapers) • Theses • Technical Reports • Patents • Standards • Conference proceedings • Government Documents • Maps, Plans, Charts • Websites • Television and radio

  5. Appropriate Research Materials • Academic and scholarly (reviewed by peers) • Written by and for researchers/academics • What is the reputation of the book/journal and its publisher & author(s)? • If there is an abstract, is it well-written? • Is there a clear research problem statement and are there objectives? • Are the organization of the article and its rationale and style clear and appropriate? • Is the quantity, quality and validity of the data acceptable? • Are the instrumentation and analytical techniques clearly described and used appropriately? • Do the conclusions and interpretations follow from the data? • Include references and bibliography

  6. The Main Library’s Website ... http://www.mainlib.uwi.tt/ E-resources & Guides

  7. Authenticating to the network User Name: Student ID # Default password: YYYYMMDD

  8. Dissecting Your Search Identify the main topics/terms: What words and phrases express key concepts? Look up terms in appropriate index(es), e.g. dictionary; thesaurus; subject/keyword list; index, etc. What terms are synonymous with others? Are there any foreign language terms? Should you include scientific names/terms? Limit your search: document type; geography; publication date, language; author; publication; company, etc

  9. Dissecting Your Search EXPLORING THE ROLE OF GEOMATICS IN DISASTER MANAGEMENT Geomatics; Emergency Management; Geographic Information Systems; GIS; Disaster Management; Remote Sensing; Evacuation Of Civilians; ENERGY MANAGEMENT IN BUILDINGS Energy Efficiency; Energy Consumption; Buildings; Energy Conservation; Energy Management; Energy Management Systems; Green Buildings; Environmental Impact and Protection; Intelligent Buildings; Low Energy Electron Diffraction; Building Performance Assessment 

  10. Dissecting Your Search IMPLEMENTATION OF LEAN MANUFACTURING IMPROVEMENT METHODOLOGIES IN A LARGE BUSINESS Lean Manufacturing; Optimization; Efficiency; Kanban methodology; Kaizen; Just in Time (JIT); Takt time; Lean Pull Scheduling System; Value Stream Mapping; Six Sigma; Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM); Total Productive Maintenance; Total Productive Maintenance (TPM); Production planning;  Scheduling algorithms; etc…
