    The correct answer is "All of the above" because biographies, articles that analyze the topic, and reviews and critiques of works of drama or music are all examples of secondary research documents.

  • 3. 

    A database search on your topic produced 1000 results. What course of action would be appropriate?

    • A.

      Narrow search results by searching within “Subject Terms” field

    • B.

      Expand your search by unchecking full-text limiter

    Correct Answer
    A. Narrow search results by searching within “Subject Terms” field
    Explanation
    When a database search produces a large number of results, it can be overwhelming to sift through all of them. Narrowing the search results by searching within the "Subject Terms" field is a suitable course of action. This will help to refine the search and focus on specific subject areas related to the topic, making it easier to find relevant information. By doing so, the search results will be more targeted and likely to provide the desired information.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    An instructor asked you to find Peer Reviewed articles. You conducted a search using “Articles & E-Books Portal”. In order to limit your search results to peer reviewed articles you should

    • A.

      Select “Scholarly Journals” checkbox

    • B.

      Select “Magazines” checkbox

    • C.

      Select “eBooks” checkbox

    Correct Answer
    A. Select “Scholarly Journals” checkbox
    Explanation
    Selecting the "Scholarly Journals" checkbox will limit the search results to peer-reviewed articles. Scholarly journals are typically peer-reviewed, meaning that articles published in these journals undergo a rigorous evaluation process by experts in the field before they are accepted for publication. This ensures that the articles are of high quality and have been reviewed by other researchers in the same field, making them reliable and credible sources of information. On the other hand, selecting the "Magazines" or "eBooks" checkboxes will not necessarily guarantee that the articles are peer-reviewed.

    Rate this question:

      Videos

    • C.

      EBooks

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The "Articles & E-Books Portal" includes all types of sources mentioned in the options, which are scholarly articles, videos, and eBooks. This means that users can access and find scholarly articles, videos, and eBooks through this portal.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which one of these search types looks at the largest portion of a library catalog record to find your terms?

    • A.

      Author

    • B.

      Title

    • C.

      Keyword

    • D.

      ISBN

    Correct Answer
    C. Keyword
    Explanation
    Keyword search looks at the largest portion of a library catalog record to find your terms. When conducting a keyword search, the system searches through the entire catalog record, including the title, author, subject headings, and other descriptive information, to find any matches with the terms entered. This allows for a broader search, as it looks for keywords anywhere in the record, rather than focusing on specific fields like author or title.
