Information Skills • Internet search engines, these databases contain carefully catalogued information, and you can exploit this to improve your searching skills. Plan Your Search • Before you even go near the Internet, spend some time thinking about exactly what information you need. • Start by jotting down words or phrases as they come to mind, as this may help to define exactly what information you need. As your ideas become clearer, try to write a single sentence or search statement which exactly describes what you need to know. • A good technique to help you do this it is to underline the keyword or ideas in the sentence
Searching skills • Once you have your list of key words or ideas you will need to make sure that you have all the possible alternative words that could be used to describe your list of ideas. For example, there are several alternative terms for effective (e. g. competent, productive, proficient, capable) and even the internet can be referred to in several different ways (e. g. internet, www, world-wide-web). To make sure that you cover all the possibilities you need to take into account: • Synonyms • Plurals • Phrases • Abbreviations • Acronyms • Variations in spelling (e. g. organisation and organization between UK and US English)
Quick search Steps: 1. 2. 3. 4. Click on quick search Use the quick features as a search all fields Enter search terms (subject, keyword, title) Results are displayed search terms highlighted • Allows the use Boolean operators AND, OR and NOT to boarder and narrow the search as well as use of quotation mark (“ ”)
