Cdu Library Skills Cuc100 - Quiz

Brief quiz on library services for Common Units


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What was the most valuable information you gained from library sessions?

  • 2. 

    The first step in developing a search strategy is:

    • A.

      Using Boolean Operators AND, OR

    • B.

      Identifying keywords and synonyms from your essay topic

    • C.

      Truncation

    • D.

      Copying the whole essay topic into Summon

    Correct Answer
    B. Identifying keywords and synonyms from your essay topic
    Explanation
    The first step in developing a search strategy is to identify keywords and synonyms from your essay topic. This is important because it helps you narrow down your search and find relevant information. By identifying the key terms and their synonyms, you can create effective search queries and increase the chances of finding the information you need. Using Boolean operators and truncation are search techniques that can be used later in the process, but they are not the first step. Copying the whole essay topic into Summon is not a recommended approach as it may not yield accurate or relevant results.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The Boolean operator AND

    • A.

      Connects the synonyms together

    • B.

      Connects keywords/relevant search terms together

    • C.

      Gives irrelevant results

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Connects keywords/relevant search terms together
    Explanation
    The Boolean operator AND connects keywords/relevant search terms together. This means that when using the AND operator in a search query, the search engine will only return results that include all of the specified keywords or search terms. This helps to narrow down the search results and make them more relevant to the user's query.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Summon searches only the library catalogue.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Summon is not limited to searching only the library catalogue. Summon is a powerful search tool that allows users to search across multiple sources including books, articles, databases, and other digital content. It provides a comprehensive search experience by retrieving results from various resources available to the library. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When using a website for my assignment I

    • A.

      Need to evaluate the website content

    • B.

      Don't need to evaluate the website content

    • C.

      Website information is always credible, accurate and valid

    Correct Answer
    A. Need to evaluate the website content
    Explanation
    When using a website for an assignment, it is important to evaluate the website content. This is because not all websites provide accurate and credible information. By evaluating the content, one can determine the reliability and validity of the information presented on the website. This ensures that the information used for the assignment is trustworthy and of high quality.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Using truncation in a search will

    • A.

      Search for word variations

    • B.

      Search for exactly what you type into the search box

    • C.

      Search for synonyms (different words with the same meaning)

    Correct Answer
    A. Search for word variations
    Explanation
    Using truncation in a search allows for searching word variations. Truncation involves adding a symbol, usually an asterisk (*), to the end of a word stem. This symbol acts as a wildcard, allowing the search engine to retrieve results that include any word formed by adding letters after the truncated part. For example, searching for "comput*" would retrieve results for "computer," "computing," "computation," etc. This helps to broaden the search and capture different forms of the word, increasing the chances of finding relevant information.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The bigger the number of search results the better my search skills

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "The bigger the number of search results the better my search skills" is false. The number of search results does not necessarily indicate the quality or accuracy of the search skills. It is possible to have a large number of search results but still not find the desired information or have poor search skills. The effectiveness of search skills depends on the ability to use appropriate keywords, filters, and search techniques to find relevant and accurate information efficiently.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Your reference details are saved in the folder using Summon

    • A.

      Permanently

    • B.

      Not saved at all

    • C.

      Saved temporarily

    Correct Answer
    C. Saved temporarily
    Explanation
    The reference details are saved temporarily using Summon. This means that the information is stored for a limited period of time and may be deleted or removed after a certain period. It is not saved permanently, as it would imply that the information is stored indefinitely, and it is not saved at all, as it would mean that the information is not stored or retained in any way.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When using Summon you can narrow/refine your search by

    • A.

      Content type

    • B.

      Publication date

    • C.

      Subject terms

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    When using Summon, you have the option to narrow or refine your search by different criteria. You can narrow your search by content type, which allows you to specify the type of material you are looking for, such as articles, books, or videos. You can also narrow your search by publication date, which helps you find more recent or older materials. Additionally, you can narrow your search by subject terms, which allows you to focus on specific topics or subjects. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above" because all of these options are available for refining your search in Summon.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Some website content maybe biased

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because website content can often be biased. Bias can occur when the content is influenced by the author's personal opinions, beliefs, or interests. It is important for readers to critically evaluate the information they find on websites and consider the potential biases that may be present. By doing so, they can make more informed decisions and form a more balanced understanding of the topic at hand.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    When should you use quotation marks in your search strategy

    • A.

      Searching using a single word

    • B.

      When you want to join your search terms together

    • C.

      Don't use quotations at all in a search

    • D.

      Searching for a phrase

    Correct Answer
    D. Searching for a phrase
    Explanation
    Quotation marks should be used in a search strategy when searching for a phrase. This allows the search engine to find results that include the exact phrase within the quotation marks, rather than individual words or variations of the phrase. By using quotation marks, the search results will be more precise and relevant to the desired phrase.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Research skills are not important

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Research skills are important because they enable individuals to gather and analyze information effectively. Research skills are crucial in various fields such as academia, business, and healthcare. They help individuals to make informed decisions, solve complex problems, and contribute to the advancement of knowledge. Without research skills, individuals may struggle to find reliable sources, critically evaluate information, and draw accurate conclusions. Therefore, the statement that research skills are not important is false.
