UGS 303: Survive and Thrive at UT: LGBTQ UT/Prof. Moore

Home

Answers to Follow-up Questions

A question about how to do the annotated bibliography if you are doing an alternative assignment like visual art.

Once you've got it cleared by Prof. Moore, contact me and I can help. For example, if you are doing an art piece about your experiences in a specific area, we can find other LGBTQ+ artists who create art based on their experiences and use what is written about their work or interviews with them to situate your work. Or we can find research about the experience you are representing and use that information to contextualize your own work.

I would like to know about citing things like videos

Within NoodleTools, which you can find on the Cite Sources page of this guide, you'll find help citing all kinds of formats, including video. There are also great guides for MLA and APA on the web that can help, such as these from the Online Writing Lab at Excelsior.

Someone wrote "journal articles" as something still unclear. 

I'm not sure if it is what they are or how to find them (or something else entirely) that is unclear. On the Find Articles page of this guide is a video about peer-review which is helpful in explaining what they are and how they function. Feel free to reach out to me for whatever aspect of journal articles are unclear and I'm happy to help.

What is this library session all about?

We're here to get you started doing college-level research. Our learning goals for this library session are to equip you to:

  • locate sources in the UT Libraries for research assignments.
  • analyze sources for credibility and appropriateness for research assignments.  
  • identify campus services you can use for help doing research, writing, public speaking and organizing and citing sources.

Here are a few things you should know:

  • I am here to help you learn about college-level research. I understand learning doesn't work the same way for everyone, and that an hour isn't long enough to do more than get started. I want you to feel comfortable reaching out for help during and after the session, and confident about using this guide throughout the semester.
  • I do my best to foster an inclusive classroom environment to ensure that all of you are respected, safe and supported in your learning.

How Can a Librarian Help?

Librarians are available to help with every step of the research process. We are information professionals and love working with students to connect you with the information you need. We can help you:

  • choose a research topic or find a research question
  • broaden or narrow your topic
  • find sources, whether they are books, articles, maps, music, data, etc. We can help you do great searches using Libraries tools and search engines like Google. 
  • evaluate sources. Is it credible? Is it peer-reviewed? etc.
  • recommend tools for organizing your research and citations..
