Topic 5B: Researching with Oxford Reference Online
Purpose: Go deeper by refining search strategies in Oxford Reference Online; like a "rerun" on TV, "research" means "look again."
Try these 3 strategies:
Strategy 1: What are you looking for?
In NexLearn, different resources look for different types of information. Separating and combining the right resources will help you target your searching
|If you need:||Then use:||You'll get:|
|Full Text Reference materials (overviews)||Oxford Reference Online||Full Text Reference materials (overviews)|
Strategy 2: What terms describe what you're looking for?
Keep a list of search terms you'v used, and of ones you find while searching. Both "abominable snowman" and "yeti" describe the same thing, but some citations may use both terms, and some only one- or the other! Make separate searches with alternative terms; mix it up to see if you've found all there is to find.
Strategy 3: Learn more about searching
From the Oxford Reference Online login page, choose Help, then choose a topic
