1. Explore GLDYS, the search box on the main library page and perform the boolean searches you planned in the last module in GLDYS to find resources on your topic. Answer the questions below fully and thoughtfully, and record at least five searches and two sources on your topic.
Investigate the following features of GLDYS:
- Libraries Worldwide/Mary Baldwin University Limiter
- Format Limiters
- Advanced Search
- Item availability and access info
- Subjects (open item and expand description)
- Other libraries that hold item
- Request Item through Interlibrary Loan Button (open item without immediate access and expand availability)
All of your searches should use Boolean operators. Try a few field searches. Make note of any fields or limiters.
|What you Searched (Boolean Keyword searches or Field Searches)||# of Results||Relevance|
2. Identify the worst query you tried, and why you think it didn’t work as expected. How can you make it better?
3. Which sources did you find that you like for your research? Include the link to the item here. What do you like about them? How do you think they will be helpful for your research? How can you access these sources?
