Although there are various search tools available to you, some are better than others for finding scholarly information.
Internet search engines such as Google are tools that are accessible by anyone and are useful when searching for general information such as definitions and background information and for locating Government and Organisation websites. However for the purpose of finding information for your assignment we consider Primo Search and the Journal Databases as better and best as they are provided by the CSU Library for the use of CSU students and staff only, enabling access to subscribed content that is not freely available via internet search engines.
To increase the effectiveness of your information searching try adopting some advanced or Boolean searching techniques.
Use the truncation symbol * to search for related terms that have the same stem word e.g. teach* = teacher, teaches, teaching
Phrase searching Phrase searching involves placing double quotation marks ("__") around two or more words to create a search term. This technique narrows the search to retrieve only those results in which the exact phrase appears
Boolean operators allow you to fine tune your search by using the operators "AND" and "OR" to combine keywords and expand or narrow your search.
