The following task is designed to expand your familiarity with UMUCâ€™s Information and Library Serviceâ€™s OneSearch function.
As with the previous two library tasks, completing this exercise will help inform your research for the white paper in our class.
After you have watched the tutorial, please complete the following tasks.
1. Conduct a keyword search on a topic that interests you. You can conduct the same search you made in one of our previous library exercises if you would like.
What word or phrase did you search on?
How many search results do you get?
2. Follow the instructions provided on the video and select a new database on the right-hand side of your screen. Then answer the following questions:
What database did you select?
How many search results did you get after adding this database?
3. Next, locate the research guide for your major. If you have not declared a major yet, please select one from that interests you from the options from the drop-down menu.
Peruse the research guide for that major. Describe to the rest of the class in a few sentences any interesting resources you discovered.
