Additional Tips: Use a multi-pronged approach; search by using our Omni catalogue, the databases, Google Scholar, the bibliographies of articles you have found Think of different terms for the same word (e.g. post-secondary OR university) Use quotation marks when searching for two words that go together as a phrase (e.g. “mental health”) Use an asterisk and the root of a word to get all forms of it (e.g. rac* will find the words race and racial) For scholarly articles, look for the “peer-reviewed journals” option in the Omni catalogue and in the databases If you search in our Omni articles, use the links (especially the “subject links” and “more options”) to narrow down your search Research help: See Pauline Dewan (email@example.com or call 519 756-8228 ext. 5529) You are welcome to drop in To make sure I am there, it is best to make an appointment My office is beside the digital library/study space in the basement of Grand River Hall (108B) Please note: The Library is committed to providing programs, events and services that are accessible to all.
