  19. Finding books: Why? • Comprehensive accounts of research or scholarship • Broader historical perspective • More complete information (causes, effects, long-term consequences, fuller conclusions, etc.)

  20. Finding books/chapters Method 1: keyword searching in catalogue Eg “bicycle*”: 591results Narrow: add term “identity”

  21. Catalogue tips Up your relevancy: Add terms such as • “Social aspects” • “History” • “Environmental aspects” • “in popular culture” • “psychological aspects” • “in art”

  22. Subject headings • Interested in the issue of overconsumption? • Search as keyword. • See # 16: Psychology and consumer culture : the struggle for a good life in a materialistic world • Follow links at the bottom of the record

  23. Practice time!

  24. Overcoming obstacles 1. Terms count. Brainstorm synonyms • Handbags OR purses • Bicycles OR bikes OR cycling • IPhone or cell phone or cellular telephone or smart phone or mobile telephone

  25. 2. Be prepared to think broad Nothing on… • Handbags? • Cell phones? • Espresso machines?

  26. 3. Don’t marry your topic • Even in this age of information, many research gaps exist • It’s possible that no scholar has published on your topic • Mine a rich vein: leave the obscure for grad school
