Research Website Tutorial: How to Search the Database


Hello. I’m Adele Gottfried, the Director of
Research Enhancement at the Michael D. Eisner College of Education. I’d like to take a few minutes of your time
to show you around our exciting new database of faculty research, which showcases faculty
research and scholarship, and also helps students to find professors with whom they’d like to
work. You can find the Research website by following
the link from the main navigation bar on the College of Education homepage. In addition
to finding the latest education research news, you will also be able to search through our
database of featured faculty research and scholarship. You can choose to view a list of research
items either by the name of the professor and the department they belong to using the
“Sort by Faculty” button, or by the research topic using the “Sort by Topic” button. Clicking
on the name of the professor in the “Sort by Faculty” view will bring you to their profile
page, including information on all of their submitted scholarship. Clicking on the research
topic from the “Sort by Topic” page will show you a list of relevant research items from
all of our faculty. You can also choose to do a more detailed
search through our database using the main “Search” button on the Research website homepage.
You can be as specific or as general as you’d like when filling out the search fields. Any
fields left blank will match all the items for that field. Choosing a specific research
type from the drop-down list will allow you to provide extra search parameters that are
you unique to the type chosen. When filling in key phrases to search for, a suggestion
box will appear to show you similar research topics that are already in our database. Clicking
on the suggested phrase will add it to your search. Finally, click the “Search” button
to perform your search and bring you to the results page. On the results page, you will see a list of
names and citations of relevant research items. Clicking on the citation or the “plus” sign
to the left of it will make the research item expand to show you the abstract. Clicking
on the “View more details” button will open up a new page where you will find even more
information about the selected topic, including a list of collaborators, its date, and a full
list of key phrases associated with the work. Thank you for watching our video. We hope
you found it useful, and we’d be happy to provide any additional personal assistance
you may need. We look forward to your participation.

Danny Hutson
