Research Process

These pages offer an introduction to the research process at a very general level.

Finding Similar Resources

Have you located a scholarly article which is precisely on topic for your research? If so, you will probably want to find additional resources which are similar or related. Using a single article to locate more resources relevant to your topic is a very effective research technique. There are simple ways to do this, though these methods can sometimes be easily overlooked.

The following sub-pages will describe techniques for finding similar resources in the Library’s databases, as well as outside of the Library.

Searching 102 Workshop

This library workshop builds upon Searching 101 and covers field searching, nesting, proximity searching, and finding similar resources. Various databases will be used throughout the workshop to demonstrate different searching techniques.
