As you know, we’ve been developing a suite of literature searching modules for you to use as part of the information skills training you offer.
In November we launched the first three modules, ‘Building the Foundations’, to help users to assess their level of skill in literature searching, find out more about the resources available to them and start planning a search.
The second phase of the project ‘Developing the skills’ includes three modules supporting users to apply a range of searching techniques to find relevant articles quickly and easily.
- Module 4 Too many results? How to narrow your search
- Module 5 Too few results? How to broaden your search
- Module 6 Searching with subject headings
Please feel free to place these links on your websites use the attached flier to promote the modules. Don’t forget that we also developed animations to help users apply OR/AND in their searches. These can be included in training sessions or added to your web sites:
The final module on ‘Applying the skills’ will be launched in April 2018.
