Home: Welcome to the PHY 1010 Class Guide
This is a guide of librarian-recommended information resources for students in PHY 1010. This guide has general information for using library and other information resources. Remember that you can always contact Brian for help with finding Physics information.
Use QuickSearch to find articles on Physics topics
Experiment with looking for scholarly information on this question, "How is remote sensing being used to explore groundwater contamination?"
QuickSearch combines results from many search tools for you to review in one list. Results come from the Wright State catalog and hundreds of library databases including all of our Ebscohost databases, JSTOR, the Web of Science, and others.
Peer review explained
Brief but excellent video from North Carolina State University explains what peer review is and why it is important.
To find peer-reviewed articles in QuickSearch, choose Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals to the left of your results. Ask a librarian if you need help.
Using Google Wisely
Google can be a great place to start your search for free information. Google Scholar helps you find scholarly information that may or may not be free. WSU Libraries pays for you to have access to many of the fee-based articles that you find in Google Scholar.
Whether using Google or Google Scholar, be sure to evaluate what you find.
