This guide will walk you through the process of searching for, selecting, accessing, and using the research resoruces that you need for CS 3604, and beyond!
A few tips to get you started:
1. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Simply contact your librarian directly ------------------------>
2. If you're doing research from off campus, make sure you use the Off Campus Sign In option.
3. Use Summon to conduct a Google-like search of most of our library resources. While it's not a disciplinary database, like the ones that I recommend to you on this guide, it can help you gain a broad overview of a particular research topic or question.
4. When searching Summon, Google Scholar, or any of the databases that I recommend, break your research question into keywords, rather than typing in the entire sentence or question. Click here to read more about strategies for creating good keyword searches.
5. Use the Computer Science subject guide to identify relevant databases.
6. When trying to access articles and other resources, look for the Get VText box:
The Writing Center is located in Newman Library's second floor Learning Commons, just past the elevators.
It is open to all Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff, at all levels. We work with writing and reading assignments from any course in the University.
This is an excellent FREE resource! Check them out.
