Sarah HallGEN/105Jason BondJanuary 16, 2011Student Survival GuideUsing Axia’s Educational ResourcesDownloading files for use on your own computer, or a portable device is very helpful.I take advantageof downloading information from the class materials on my MP3 player in order to listen to the written material asthis helps me retain information better.I also save the documents to my desktop on my laptop, so I can take itanywhere I am to read even if I can’t access the internet at the time.By downloading the materials in each sectiononto my computer and MP3 player, I have the ability to take Axia wherever I go.Navigating the University Library can seem like a daunting task in the beginning as there is so muchinformation to see and use.There are many resources available to use, and so many different sites and sources togain information from.I personally like to go into General Resources first to start my research, and then choosefrom EBSCOhost, Gale PowerSearch, or ProQuest.Each source has many articles, both peer reviewed and not,journals, and periodicals to choose from.These resources are good for both school and personal use for me.I alsolike to utilize the Reference and Citation Generator and the APA Information.Both of these help me tremendouslyin citing my work correctly.When finding articles and literature for information for my papers I make sure that I identify keyinformation within those articles.I pay close attention to headings and subheadings to find the information specificto what I’m researching and go from there.I look for information inBOLDletters oritalicswhich will also help mefind information I need fast.
