how to search generally speaking
How to search, generally speaking:
  • Start at the library homepage: http://library.southalabama.edu
  • Use keywords, not questions
  • Try different search terms
  • Use quotation marks to search a phrase (works most places) – example “University of South Alabama”
  • Keep track of where and how you searched
where to search it depends on
Where to search? It depends on:
  • What type of information you need
  • What format that information is in

finding books
Finding books
  • Can be print or electronic books
  • Find them in SOUTHcat, E-Book Collections, or OneSearch
  • USA Libraries’ catalog
  • Contains records for books, some e-books, government documents, media, some special collections, and USA theses/dissertations
  • Quick video overview: http://library.southalabama.edu/ewilson/tutorials/EDL561/southcat.html
e book collections
E-Book Collections
  • Not all e-books are listed in SOUTHcat and OneSearch (notably Ebrary) so you may want to search collections individually
  • E-books from different sources work differently. Contact us if you run into problems.
  • Video overview: http://library.southalabama.edu/ewilson/tutorials/EDL561/ebooks.html
  • Searches all of SOUTHcat and about 185 databases
  • This is a lot, but not all of the library collection
  • For your purposes, I recommend using SOUTHcat, e-book collections, and education databases separately rather than OneSearch.
  • More info about OneSearch: http://libguides.southalabama.edu/onesearch
finding articles
Finding articles
  • Newspaper, magazine, and academic journal articles
  • Most are in electronic format these days
  • Can search for them in individual, discipline-specific databases or OneSearch
  • Three important education databases:
    • Education Research Complete
    • ERIC
    • Professional Development Collection
    • Video overview: http://library.southalabama.edu/ewilson/tutorials/EDL561/databases.html
  • I recommend that you use the education databases rather than OneSearch.
