AFTER THE LIBRARY INSTRUCTION
Here are some pointers about things you can do after the library instruction.
For help throughout the semester, contact Brian Simboli, x8-5003.
(1) SET UP ILLIAD ACCOUNT
Spend two minutes setting up an ILLiad account if you have not already done so. ILLiad enables you to order articles that Lehigh does not have. Go to http://library.lehigh.edu/ill. Click on ILLiad. Fill out required one-time registration information.
(2) BACKGROUND INFO SOURCES
Familiarize yourself a bit with the resources under “Finding Background Information” It is important to have some general knowledge of your topic before delving further into your research, and then to consult quality background resources to clarify concepts further as you read papers.
(3) SCHOLARLY ARTICLES, INCLUDING "REVIEW" ARTICLES
Familiarize yourself with the databases on the page of this guide "Finding Scholarly Articles", and "Finding Review Articles".
Also, read the page "Remote Sensing Journals". It has information you might find useful for identifying timely topics in cutting edge areas published in journals dedicated to remote sensing. Also, it's good to know about these journals if you become a specialist in remote sensing.
(4) CITING SOURCES
Make sure to cite your sources using AGU style, whether your are citing in a paper or presentation. See the Citing Sources page of this guide.
You can use ZoteroBib, a tool that helps you create end of paper references as well as in-text citations. View the tutorials about it in the Citing Sources page.
Quickly check your results from ZoteroBib against the AGU style manual linked in the guide. Don't worry about in-text citations at this point. Just format them in the citation style for references to appear at the end of the paper.
