Welcome to the Library

This guide is intended to give Dr. Schmeichel's students enrolled in FYS 101-14 and those researching for health and disease topics a starting point for their research.
 

If you have any suggestions you would like to be included on this guide, or if you would like additional research assistance, please email the librarian (librarian@oglethorpe.edu).

 

How to Use this Guide

We recommend utilizing articles (searchable through GALILEO) and books (available in the library) to find topics for your assignment. To start the research process:

  1. First, think about your specific topic and what keywords you need to search. Before beginning to search the catalog and article databases, make a list of keywords to use in your searches. For each keyword, think of several synonyms to also search (for example, Southern literature, literature of the American south, Southern states literature). Try using the keywords and synonyms in different searches to maximize the number of results you receive.

  2. Also search at least 3 or 4 recommended article databases with your keywords and synonyms. See the "Articles" tab above for links to databases.

  3. Addditionally you may need to look up books in our library. Go to the "Books" tab above for a link to our Catalog. You will need to write down the call number for any book you want, and then retrieve it from our stacks.

  4. If you are unsure about background facts on your topic, gather background information about your topic of interest (utilize the "Reference Sources" tab above).

If at any point you need assistance, stop by the Library or email us.
