HUMA 395 A01 Reserach Ethics and Methods

This guide will help you with reserach for HUMA 395 A01: Research Methods and Ethics

Summon

Summon is a giant research database, and is a useful starting point for research. 

Pros: It's really big!

Cons: It's really big! 

Summon is like Google for the library. It has a lot of every kind of thing, from every subject, and tries to bring you back as many results as possible. 

Pro Tips:

  1. Include 3 or 4 ideas from your research question in your keyword search (think people, places, things - add your limits and boundaries)
  2. Add your discipline or broad subject (History) as well as ideas from your research question (History and Women and Canada and Work)
  3. Use the limiters provided to apply your NON subject critiera (publication date, scholarly or peer reviewed, language, etc) 
  4. And always make sure you're logged in (to uvic.ca and the database, if necessary).
