IU Libraries Scavenger Hunt

This course will use a virtual scavenger hunt assignment to address general library research skills necessary for higher education. Review the content on each of the tabbed webpages on the left ("Libraries Tour" and "Search and Research") and view the associated videos. After you have reviewed the information in this guide, consider the following questions as a launching point for further conversation:

  1. Using IUCAT, locate an ebook related to a topic in your class and write down the title and author.
  2. What benefit is there to using Google Scholar and IU Libraries together?
  3. What is the main purpose of InterLibrary Loan (ILL)?
  4. Why might you choose to use the “scholarly (peer reviewed) journals” limiter in OneSearch?
  5. Using OneSearch, find a peer-reviewed article that you might use for this class and write down the citation in your preferred format.
