Information Literacy

  • "To be information literate, a person must be able to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information" (ALA, 1989)

  • Why should you be information literate?



Information Explosion - Electronic http://www.isc.org

    • <-> Google Scholar http://scholar.google.com/
    • Scopus http://www.scopus.com/scopus/home.url


What will you learn?

  • How to search for scientific information

  • How to use the Wageningen UR Digital Library

  • How to use bibliographic databases on different platforms

  • How to set up a search strategy

  • How to evaluate search results



Wageningen UR Digital Library http://library.wur.nl/



Wageningen Digital Library - Introduction

  • Portals: a guide to information resources by subject area and general reference

  • Search: frequently used information resources

  • User info and services: information and support

  • Log in: My Library a.o. off-campus access (staff and students WUR)

  • http://library.wur.nl/desktop/

  • http://library.wur.nl.ezproxy.library.wur.nl/ - URL after off-campus log in



Where do I find ?

  • books and journals in the library → Library Catalogue

  • Wageningen UR publications → Wageningen Yield (WaY)

  • the last issue of a journal → Electronic journals

  • journal articles → bibliographies

  • citations of articles → Web of Science / Scopus

  • electronic reference sources → Virtual Reference Desk



How can I ?

  • find important resources in my field → Subject Portals

  • find a list of all main resources → Databases A-Z or Databases by type

  • CrossSearch databases → MetaLib

  • find information on services → User info and services

  • use my personal Digital Library a.o. off-campus access→ Log in (My Library)

  • http://library.wur.nl/desktop/

  • http://library.wur.nl.ezproxy.library.wur.nl/ - URL after off-campus log in



Library Catalogue

  • To search titles of books, journals, reports in the library → Library Catalogue NOT TO SEARCH ARTICLES

  • Default: phrase searching

  • All fields= words in author(s), title, publisher, keyword(s), abstract etc.

  • Search specific fields: title, author(s), keyword(s), category

  • Wildcards: use an * to replace a string of characters or a ? to replace a single character

  • Keywords: use the Keyword lookup (thesaurus)



Bibliographic databases

  • To search journal articles, book chapters → bibliographies

  • General/multidisciplinary

    • Web of Science (since 1945)
    • Scopus (since 1960)
  • Subject specific

    • Health: PubMed, Medline (incl. Veterinary Science)
    • Agriculture: CAB Abstracts, Agris, Agricola
    • Biology: Biological Abstracts
    • Zoology: ZooRecod
    • Aquaculture and Fisheries: ASFA
    • Chemistry: SciFinder Scholar


MetaLib

  • MetaLib: Search multiple databases (bibliographies, catalogues, gateways) in one search

    • QuickSearch (10 databases)
    • MetaSearch (select databases by subject)
  • http://library.wur.nl/desktop/direct/

  • or

  • http://library.wur.nl/desktop/portals/



Search strategy in 5 steps

  • Analysis of the question

  • Formulation of search terms per concept

  • Combination of search terms

  • Too many hits : refine the search question

  • Not enough hits : broaden the search question



1. Analysis of the question (step 1)

  • Breeding programs in dairy farming in the Netherlands: First identify key concepts

  • Concept 1: Dairy farming

  • Concept 2: Breeding programs

  • Concept 3: Netherlands



1. Analysis of the question (step 1)

  • Which databases?

  • CAB Abstracts, Agris, Agricola via ERL WebSpirs

  • Scopus or Web of Science

  • Wageningen catalogue (for books, reports, theses, etc.)

  • Tip: Use the Portals on the library website

  • http://library.wur.nl/desktop/portals/



2. Formulation of terms per concept (step 2)

  • Concept 1: dairy farming

    • dairy farms
    • dairy cattle
    • dairy cows
    • dairy herds
  • Concept 3: the Netherlands

    • Gelderland
    • Groningen
    • Noord Brabant
    • Drenthe
    • Friesland
    • ……..


2. Formulation of terms per concept (step 2)

  • How do you find several terms per concept?

  • Use a Thesaurus (if available)

    • look at narrower, broader and related terms
    • scan relevant references on words in title, abstract and keywords fields
    • Read the introduction of an article: e.g. “The aim of the present study was…”


3. Combination of search terms (step 3)

  • Boolean operators:

    • OR to combine search terms per main concept
    • AND to combine main concepts
    • NOT to exclude concepts (be careful!)
  • Truncation/masking:



3. Combination of search terms (step 3)

  • dairy farm* OR dairy cattle OR dairy cow? OR dairy herd*

  • Breeding program* OR breeding practice? OR breeding strateg* OR breeding structure? OR selection scheme? OR breeding value? OR selective breeding OR selection strateg* OR sire selection

  • Netherlands (use thesaurus if available or choose specific field to search)

  • Grass breeding program*

  • (1 AND #2 AND #3) NOT #4



3. Combination of search terms (step 3)

  • ((dairy farm* OR dairy cattle OR dairy cow? OR dairy herd*) AND (breeding program* OR breeding practice? OR breeding strateg* OR breeding structure? OR selection scheme? OR breeding value? OR selective breeding OR selection strateg* OR sire selection) AND (Netherlands)) NOT (Grass breeding program*)

  • http://library.wur.nl/desktop/direct/ Go to ERL WebSpirs or select CAB- Abstracts from the resources list



4/5 Results

  • Too many: refine your search!

  • Too few: broaden your search

    • Less concepts, no limits, more or other databases


Other strategy: following a thread

  • Related articles (“more like this”)

    • In Web of Science based on the amount of references in common
    • In PubMed based on MeSH terms and words from title and abstract
    • In Scopus: choose references, keywords or authors in common.
  • Reference lists (cited references)

  • Citations (cited by)
