Finding assignment resources without being asked to pay!

Finding assignment resources without being asked to pay! | Finding Information | Scoop.it

Have you ever tried searching online for resources and have been prompted to pay for them? Google is the culprit, because it has most likely taken you to the commercial site of these articles  - hey, Google isn't that smart, it can't tell whether you are a Deakin student, a private subscriber, or a commercial company. TIP: ALWAYS START YOUR SEARCH FROM THE LIBRARY WEBSITE!

You have been told to read an article from the December 2014 issue of the Harvard Business Review, or you have been recommended a particular journal for your research/assignment. How do you know if Deakin Library has it? Don't search Google! Remember, its not that SMART, it can't tell if you are a Deakin student or not....It will always take you to the ones which you have to pay! Search A-Z journals FIRST!

YourBusinessLibrarians's insight:

Academic articles are also known as scholarly or peer reviewed. You may find these words used interchangeably in your assignments.
