  41. } InfoGate InfoGate: Use with caution Find Journal Articles, etc for Research : UseMajor Index Databases • Better than Google Scholar • Electronic index databases with links to full text for some, not all articles • Engineering Village 2 (EV2) • Scopus • Web of Science

  42. Library InfoGate • Results not sorted by number of hits or relevance • you have to scroll down to see which database yields the most hits and check allhits in each database to see if they are relevant or not. The most relevant hit could be listed last • Default maximum no. of hits shown is 40 • Some features in individual databases (e.g. controlled terms) are not supported • no. of hits per database might not be as high as you would get from searching individual databases one at a time

  43. Library InfoGate • Searches across a few databases including LINC (i.e. retrieves records for both journal articles and books) • Good starting point if you do not know which database to use

  44. Library InfoGate http://lib.nus.edu.sg/lion/infogate/index.html 1) Key in Search Term 2) Choose Search Field 3) Choose Category One option isBest Bets

  45. Library InfoGate http://lib.nus.edu.sg/lion/infogate/index.html

  46. Research Topic Use of biomaterial in dental applications

  47. Before Using Databases • Need to construct a proper search statement • Identify terms to key in • Use Boolean operators OR, AND • For Engineering Village 2, use their controlled terms

  48. Concept 1 Concept 2 Identify Terms to Key in Search Statements 1. Find concepts Use of biomaterials in dental applications 2. Think of alternative term/s for each concept Dental: tooth, teeth Biomaterial* biomaterial*represents biomaterial, biomaterials

  49. Boolean Operators ORrepresents a union of sets. The resulting set gets bigger. Set A: Fruits Apple Orange Set B: Vegetables Lettuce Tomato Set A OR Set B: AppleOROrange ORLettuce OR Tomato

  50. Set A AND Set B Boolean Operators ANDrepresents an intersection of sets.The resulting set gets smaller. Fruits AND Vegetables Tomato (Apple OrangeLettuce Tomato)
