The three things that I learned this semester about doing research that have been the most useful to me are field searching, AND vs OR, and keywords. Field searching is a very useful for narrowing down search results. It’s also very helpful when you’re looking for a specific article. AND vs OR not only narrows down search results but also helps expand search results when its too narrow. Lastly, using keywords helps get more relevant search results than when you use your own keywords. The one thing that I wish we had spent more time covering in class is BEAM. I still don’t fully understand it and sometimes get confused when categorizing an article.

Is Google’s failure to comply with the federal subpoena proof that Google is more protective of its users’ privacy than other search engines such as Yahoo! or AOL?
1. Business, News, Industry, and Legal and government news.
2. Blogs, Web-based publications, newswires, magazines, journals, newspapers, and statistics.
3. Yes, there were terms such as “search engines”, “censorship”, “science and technology” and etc.
4. When you run a search that yields more than 3000 results, the database interrupts the search and tells you that there will be more than 3000 results and asks if you would like to refine your search terms or continue with the search.
1. Current Events, News, health, social trends, criminal justice, international affairs, education, environment, technology, and economy.
2. News reports, analysis, journals, and articles.
3. No but you can browse by topics such as agriculture, business, education, health, and religion.
4. Each article has tabs on the left-hand side which you can click to jump to different sections of the article. The tabs are labeled Full Report, Introduction, Overview, Background, Current Situation, Outlook, Pros/Cons, Chronology, Short Features, Maps/Graphs, Bibliography, The Next Step, Contacts, Footnotes, and About the Author. This feature makes it easier to find information when doing research or browsing articles.
To what extent has Google protected the privacy of users in America?
When I’m given a research topic, I first go to wikipedia and get some background information. From there, I use the school’s databases to find articles and documents relating to the research topic and skim through them. While I skimming through the documents, I look for whether or not its relevant or useful to my research. After filtering the irrelevant articles from the useful and relevant, I start writing my research paper.
Magazines and newspapers cant be found using the catalog. However you can find books and dvds using the catalog.

The easiest for me when doing research is finding general information. The hardest is finding reliable sources and finding the details.
