Introduction to Research

Introducing You to Research is a powerpoint presentation that explains in detail the many ways to find & understand library information.


Secondary Documentation

As you begin your research you will use secondary resources to find out more about the topic.  These secondary sources take the form of books, articles and other synthesized resources.  Encyclopedia, dictionaries, mannuals and textbooks are secondary sources in the form of books.  Review articles and articles written about other's research or experiences are secondary sources.  Usually these secondary sources help you narrow your topic and provide context for further research.

Primary Documentation

What is a primary document? 

  • A useful introduction to primary documentation is available from RUSA, the Reference & User Services Association of the American Libraries Association. 
  • The Primary Source organization provides a thoughtful explanation of the concept of primary sources and documents.
  • Find a tutorial on primary sources here at California: Irvine.
  • Examples of primary documents/sources include: original documents (like the actual United States Constitution), research articles, diaries, interviews, personal accounts of events, eye-witness experiences and live-action news.

    Best Practices for using Campus Library E-Resources

    To avoid access problems from off-campus review the list below:

    • Create a new web browser page or window and begin on the library's website- or
    • Do not begin a library search from OneStart or Oncourse.
    • As you enter a database, you will be asked to enter your userid and passphrase/word.  The IU East IT department provides this service.  To get to some full-text resources this must be completed.  Example of screen below.
    • If you do not see the login page, close everything, if possible, and try again.
    • Report access problems to Matt Dilworth or contact by telephone at 765-973-8279.
