Hello IB students!  The University of Utah libraries is pleased to participate in your research learning!  Since we're at distance this time, we'll be working together in 3 steps:

Step One: Access to a scholarly database
"Academic Search Premier" at the Salt Lake County Library
"Academic Search Premier" at the Salt Lake City Library

Wait! I need a library card/number! How do I do that?

Academic Search Premier on Utah's Online Library
  • Go to Utah's Online Library:
  • Log in as a student: the login name is online and the password is database (note this changes from time to time, so if it doesn't work -contact
  • Open the EBSCO: High Schools database, then open Academic Search Premier.

WEB to try -if you find something here, ask a librarian for help in getting access!
Google Scholar (sometimes good, ask us for full text if you need)
Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) (scholarly and free access)
Google NGrams (search for trends in your keywords over time)


Step Two: Guided Research 
Each librarian has prepared an introductory video for you, but they're available for e-mail help, too -open up a new tab and try out the research tips as you watch.
