Finding Articles for your LIS and Archives Coursework

“How do I find articles for my assignment/paper on topic X?”


The workshop will help students to answer this common research question. The hands-on session will familiarize people with article databases relevant to the LIS & ARM fields, and offer tips for efficient and effective search strategies.


Topics covered will include:

  • Choosing the right database(s) for your topic – U of T Libraries subscribes to hundreds of different databases in all areas of study.
  • Using limits and other tools for refining searches
  • Searching effectively for articles by authors
  • Using subject search strategies that will increase your chances of finding articles
  • Finding scholarly / peer-reviewed articles
  • Getting to the articles in online or paper formats

Should you fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing your colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10 per missed workshop. Please note, it is your responsibility to sign next to your name on the attendance sheet for each workshop session. A blank signature spot will result in a penalty charge.
