10 de marzo de 2010   | Vistas: 4 |  

One of the main issues students face when performing an investigation is the process of searching for appropriate information that satisfies their needs.  Currently, university libraries have evolved to provide a much more efficient way of finding this information through digital resources.  In this conference, David W. Wilson gives a tutorial regarding the correct use of digital databases and information resources. He explains that these are useful tools which enable people to simplify the research of information on the web.  Wilson also makes a tour through JSTOR and EBSCOhost, where he demonstrates how to use the great variety of tools they provide; as well, he explains how these resources allow a much more personal usage through account creation.  Finally, he explains the main differences between common and professional databases.
