Find specific documents - "known items" video
When you are researching, you will come across references to other articles or books that you want to read. This video shows you how to do that for references to articles that have an article title, for those that don't, and for books.
Set up Google Scholar: gif
Set up Google Scholar so that the FindIt@UCalgary links are available. The links will connect back to the library, then to full-text, if the University has a subscription.
Click the "hamburger menu" --> click "Settings" --> click "Library Links" --> search "Calgary" --> check the University of Calgary options.
There is no audio for the gif below.
Research vs. review articles
The referencing style used in GEOG 456 is APA 7. The recommended resources below link to examples and how-tos.
The APA Citation Tools & Resources research guide below links to yet more APA resources, including other examples.
The OWL at Purdue is excellent for formatting other aspects of a paper (e.g. font, spacing, page numbering, etc.) in APA style.
