Announcements - Week 3

Week 3 Announcements

  

Learning the library database commands (Boolean Operators). 

    

This will be a more challenging week as we need to learn a new set of commands:  AND    OR     NOT    and  *  (asterisk/truncation).  These commands (Boolean Operators) can be used in hundreds of library databases and will give you even greater power than the Google commands:   quotes   - (minus)   site:   intitle:     

    

Because the Boolean Operators don't work (or at least don't work well) in Google - and because we will continue to use Google, Google Scholar, and Google Books Advanced - you will still need to know how and when to use the commands:  intitle:   allintitle:  site:  "  "  (quotes)  - (minus).  

     

However, to be able to locate high quality information quickly and efficiently you will need to learn how to use the power of Boolean Operators and some of the databases they control. 

 

     

 

                                           

Now you must be sure you understand the What You Must Know concepts from Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3. 

Working on Quizlets (at least the Learn and Test parts of Quizlet) is a very good way to be sure you're ready for class, Kahoots, and quizzes.

    

   

This week we have two different Quizlets:

      

A Quizlet devoted just to Boolean Operators  AND  OR   NOT  and Tuncation  *  (the asterisk)

quizlet on boolean operators 

     

A Quizlet on powerful databases such as CQ Researcher and GVRL (Gale Virtual Reference Library)

For those of you interested in issues of information (and points) we have the very fine essay "Future Reading" (worth 50 points) that looks at both the history and future of information.

    

For those interested in how the Internet is put together physically we have the TED TALK "Discover the Physical Side of the Internet".  This video can be reviewed both as a Read, Write, Cite exercise (15 points) and as an Essay Exercise (45 points).

Practice exercises are available for Week 3.  Earn up to 50 points finding answers to questions using the techniques you learn from "What You Must Know" and class.   

    

  

The Read, Reflect, Cite options (up to 90 points worth) again focus on Wikipedia, with a bit of artificial intelligence thrown for good measure.
