Advanced help with resources or research

  • See contact details at right to call or email subject librarian Randall Halverson, or meet at the library.  
  • To search for articles, find resource links and see tutorials on using EBSCO databases and EI Compendix at left of guide page "FIND, ACCESS, & CITE ARTICLES".
 

Tutorials on research concepts

Tutorial provided by APA: Basics of APA Style

University Library research skills tutorials*: 
Avoiding Plagiarism (short; 2.5 minutes!)
Citing Sources (1.5 minutes)
Discovering Resources (8 minutes)
Open and Hidden Web (3 minutes)
Popular or Scholarly? (6 minutes)

*Technical notes: if a University Library tutorial does not download and start automatically:
  • On a pc: look for tiny icons in the upper right of the browser screen. Move your cursor over each icon or link to see see what these do. One should give you the option to open the tutorial via Adobe Reader. Internet Explorer may work better than Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
  • On a mac: Safari may work better than Chrome or Firefox.

Access resources from anywhere, any time

Most library resources are "IP-filtered". Off the campus network, use one of the 3 methods listed below to access a resource. UITS technology Support Center staff can assist as needed.

1. Use a "library" link to access a resource. This is required for Books24x7.

2. From the library homepage, follow links from main Research link "Guides to Research" to "Subject Guides", or from "Find Articles & More" to "Databases A - Z" lists of links.

2. Library links have proxy code to "authenticate"; log in to IU pop-up window.

OR:

1. Set up a VPN link; see The basics of VPN at IU

2. Access resources directly via an Internet search, a browser bookmark, or the library website.  

OR:

1. Set up a secure Citrix Receiver link on mobile devices to browse resources directly & run IUanyWare software virtually. 

2. Run browser software through IUanyWare. Access resources via an Internet search or the library website.
