Assignment Week: Day 2 One Search

This week the blog is looking at how to find and reference information for your assignments and projects.  Yesterday, we looked at plagiarism

Today, we are looking at how to search the library databases or One Search.  One Search is a powerful search engine that searches all of the library databases, and the library catalogue, simultaneously.  The library databases contain journal articles, conference papers, magazine articles etc.  They are full of the type of scholarly information that your lecturers want you to use in your assignments and projects!

Have a look at this short tutorial on how to use One Search.  At the end, you should be able to:
  • access One Search
  • construct a basic search
  • refine your search results to find the most relevant articles
  • recognise how to find the article PDF in any database
  • import article references into RefWorks
