  • Top 5 Web research mistakes
10 Rules for Effective Web Research
  1. Define your topic Think about what you are researching, write or think of the three most important elements of your research -- sometimes it helps to frame your research topic as a question.
  2. Understand subject-oriented searching vs. keyword searching A directory is an examples of a subject-oriented search tool, whereas Google is a keyword search engine. Some search engines, like ask.com and clusty combine keyword and subject-oriented searching.
  3. Explore different search engines - know your search engine Finding What You Need with the Best Search Engine very good annotated, catogorized list of search engines by Phil Bradley, Choose the Best Search for Your Information Needs excellent guide from NoodleTools
  4. Utilize advanced searching
  5. Use directories Directories compile selected Websites, grouped by subject. Recommended directories:
  6. Unique terms deliver more precise results Use the most unique element of your research topic in your search term. For example, if you are researching the current Queen of England, do not enter "queen", "the queen" or "queen of england" as a search term, as there have been many queens. Instead be precise and search "Queen Elizabeth II".
  7. Using quote marks " " when searching an exact phrase
  8. Metasearch engines will help refine your search Metasearch engines show you search results from a selection of search engines: Google, Yahoo!, Ask, etc. Recommended metasearch engines: Mamma and Dogpile.
  9. Use the invisible Web Invisible Web: What It Is, How to Find It, and Its Inherent Ambiguity an excellent introduction from UC Berkley Library
  10. Know how to evaluate Web resources Evaluating Web Pages: Techniques to Apply & Questions to Ask another excellent tutorial from UC Berkley Library

Top 5 Web Research Mistakes
  1. "Research = Finding" Research is not just finding stuff -- it's finding and evaluating the best, most appropriate stuff
  2. "I found this online; it's true." Just because it's online doesn't mean it's true or accurate
  3. "Everything is online." Not everything is available online
  4. "This was the top result!" The top search results are not necessarily the best
  5. "I'll just Google it." Google does not index everything on the Web

library (surreal) video

The Long Island Library Resources Council (LILRC) recently sponsored a video contest, LilTube, to showcase Long Island libraries -- and Melville Library got in on the act.

Stony Brook Southampton librarian Darren Chase describes his entry, secret library, as "surreal" and "the library as a psychological experience". Darren's video combines a trip through Melville Library with backwards writing and field recordings of Tibetan throat chants, B'hai prayer and thunder. Watch secret library for an uncommon perspective on the library.

Graduate Student Organization Distinguished Service Award

Donna Sammis, Instructional support specialist in Interlibrary Loan has been awarded the Graduate Student Organization Distinguished Service Award for 2007-08.

GSO Distinguished Service Awards are ultimately decided by the GSO Executive Council. Each year a call is sent out to the GSO membership, all the graduate students at Stony Brook University, asking for people to nominate administrators, faculty and staff who have provided exceptional service to the graduate student community. The Executive Council then looks over the nominations and chooses who should get the award for that year.

Donna was nominated and chosen because of the exceptional service she's provided to graduate students. The items she orders through Interlibrary borrowing are essential to helping graduate students complete their papers, reports, experiments, thesis, dissertations, etc. over the years that they are in graduate school and hopefully beyond. Without her support, graduate student projects would take longer and/or might be impossible to complete.

Congratulations to Donna from her colleagues in ILL, Reference and throughout the library!

Italy Today by Mario B. Mignone on April 17th

Melville Library Author Series: Italy Today: Facing the Challenges of the New Millennium featuring author and Stony Brook Distinguished Service Professor, Mario B. Mignone.

Program: Italy Today is a concise narrative of the nation's stunning transformation from the ashes of World War II to the leading economic and cultural power it is today. This book provides insights into the dynamics of Italy's progression from the Second World War, through the anthropologically revolutionary 1970s and '80s, and into the complexities of a post-industrial nation, negotiating the challenges created by industrial, economic, and cultural globalization. Encompassing cultural, political, and economic spectrums, the book devotes particular attention to the controversial issues of the role of the family in Italian society and economy, the insidious presence of the Mafia, the lasting influence of Catholicism, the impact of television, and the country's often unstable politics, framing all these as the result of a complex and unique relationship between the individual and the state, with the family acting as intermediary.

Date: Thursday, April 17 at 4 p.m.
Location: Center for Italian Studies (4th floor of the Melville Library)
Sponsors: The Center for Italian Studies and the University Libraries
