  1. Library Workshop for BEd Students January 2012

  2. Outline • Warm up: Finding a Particular Article • Database in Focus - ERIC • Another Educational Resource Example – ProQuest Education Databases • RefWorks • Google Scholar

  3. HKIEd Library Websitehttp://www.lib.ied.edu.hk Search for books, journals, media resources Essential tips: make sure you are familiar with the HKALL, the request / recall system, library delivery service between the Tai Po MMW Library and Town Centre branch, and understand how to read the location codes (e.g. MMW Lib Book)

  4. Finding a Particular Article • Is this article available in the Library? • There are more than one way to check whether we have a particular article. The simplest way is to check the Library catalogue by journal title (not the article title) • E.g. • Sadler, P. M. & Good, E. (2006). The impact of self- and peer-grading on student learning. Educational Assessment, 11(1), 1-31. doi:10.1207/s15326977ea1101_1

  5. Search the Library catalogue to see if we have the print copy and / or electronic copy of the Journal

  6. We may have more than one database providing access to the same journal but they may contain issues for different years – and some of them use an embargo period (e.g. latest 12 months not available)

  7. E-Journals – if you are off-campus and only interested in online availability • Search by Keywords • Browse by Subject or Title

  8. Finding a Particular Article • Is this article available in the Library? • Sadler, P. M. & Good, E. (2006). The impact of self- and peer-grading on student learning. Educational Assessment, 11(1), 1-31. doi:10.1207/s15326977ea1101_1

  9. Why use e-database for information? • E-Database is an organized collection of scholarly information. • E-Databases contain update information of journal articles, book reviews, conference papers, and other academic materials. • E-Databases support flexible and in-depth search for journal title, article title, author, issue, volume, etc. • Use electronic databases to search for local and international literature. • Some databases provide the complete full text articles. • Other databases provide abstracts of the journal articles.

  10. E-Resources • Include E-Databases & E-Book Collections • Search by Keywords • Browse by Subject or Title

  11. E-Resources by Subject – E.g. Education

  16. Database in Focus – ERIC

  17. Find ERIC by Browsing "E" (or browse by education subject; or search ERIC)

  18. Remote access to Library E-Resources Users will be prompted to enter their HKIEd Network user names, and HKIEd Network paswords when they select the databases on the Library webpage for authentication purpose.

  19. Access to ERIC database Enter keywords Search Results Limit your search

  20. Example • Your research topic: Is goal setting a useful strategy for learning English as a second language? • Identify the Keywords: English as second language AND goal setting • Use indexes / thesaurus / descriptors to check related terms where necessary. How many records retrieved?

  21. Example Full Text available

  22. Searching tips: Expand your search • Use “expanders” from the database search screen to expand your search • Use Boolean operator “OR” to include more search terms e.g. Second language learning or english as second language or esl • Use truncation (*) to expand your search term in alternative way e.g. learn* to search for learning, learns, learner, etc. profess* to search for profession, professor, professional, professionalization, etc.

  23. Searching tips: Narrow your search • Use “Limiter” from the database search screen to limit your search results in various way • Consider the suggested “Narrow Search Results by Subject” from the search result screen • Use Boolean operator “AND” to limit search results to a narrower scene e.g. peer assessment AND higher education

  24. ERIC EBSCOHost – Refine your results by Subjects, Peer-reviewed Journals, Year, etc.

  25. Reduced from over 300 results to 56 by selecting peer reviewed and 2000 and after

  27. Searching Multiple Databases in Ebscohost

  28. Add to Folder: Save / Print / Email / Export
