Resource Lists:


Step 1: Check Destiny - the library catalog 

  • How do I use it? - KEYWORD search on your topic (i.e. gun control, minimum wage)
    • DO NOT get specific with your topic in a search (i.e. body cameras in law enforcement)
    • Check our library first
    • Then select Drop-down arrow at Location, then select Capital Region BOCES School Library System
  • Still nothing? - check a wider range of schools, public libraries, and colleges
    •  Interlibrary Loan is possible from anywhere but will not happen quickly, don't wait! 
    • Upper Hudson Library System (including Voorheesville Public Library)  


Step 2: Databases 

  • Tips to remember:
    • Keep the search simple
    • Use Advanced search techniques - wrapping a phrase in quotations keeps the search as a phrase "Patriot Act" instead of Patriot and Act (works on Google, too!) 
  • Do the same search in multiple places - if 1 database doesn't have anything, go to the next
  • Be observant - use the database tools (narrow search; subject headings; item type) 
  • Check your information - (are the articles saying the same thing over and over again? you need to expand the resources you are looking in!)
