Below you will find four assignments you can work on during the library session. If all works out well, you have a number of relevant titles on your topic after finishing the assignments. If you think your topic is not well-defined enough, try to describe it with the best possible terms and give the several search engines a try.
Have a look at the tabs of this LibGuide before you make the assignments. At each assignment you will find links to background information. Click through to other LibGuides, where you will also find useful information.
Write down your answers on the assignment form so you can get immediate feedback.
Note down on what topic (theme and method) you will write a paper or give a presentation
1b. Search terms
Find search terms relating to this topic (Who? What? Where? When? etc.) Try to come up with as many search terms as possible, use synonyms. Make a list of these search terms. A mindmap could help you at organising the search terms in a structured way.
Write down at each title:
1. in which search engine you have found it
2. if it is available in print or digitally
3. if it is a print version, indicate where exactly it is located in the library (location-collection-shelfmark).
Please only request print books if you really intend to read them (i.e. not the ones you use as examples for this assignment)
