EH501 -- Advanced Research Techniques in Literature: This Library Guide is designed to accompany and complement the EH501 course, Introduction to Graduate Study in English. While it may duplicate content in some other LibGuides, much of what it contains is unique and focuses on more sophisticated search strategies not addressed in other LibGuides..
The books in the Strategies and Sources series.
Use the library's JaxCat catalog to find books or other "whole" items such as CDs, DVDs, journals, or magazines.
Use electronic databases either singly or in clusters to find "partial" items, such as articles in newspapers, magazines, or scholarly, peer-reviewed journals.
Use the Discovery search for omnibus searches cutting across several academic disciplines or media or format types. Or, to find information on subjects so obscure that Jaxcat or database searches turn up little or nothing.
Use an internet search engine ( e. g., Google) to find:
1) primary source documents (including theses and dissertations), images, videos, webpages: Google Search;
2) scholarly articles, open source texts: Google Scholar;
3) books and parts of books: Google Books.
In nearly all instances, Advanced Search mode is superior to a single-box search.
