Library leisurely – Why (not) come to the library?

All electronic library sources are accessible remotely using VPN. After the setup you can access to online sources, such as e-books, e-journals, thesis repository – as if you were here. You can renew your books entering into the catalogue or you can make reservations. Training and consultation sessions in different themes go through Teams. 

Some services are available only locally, e.g. borrowing or studying in group consultation rooms. We are happy if you visit us!

“I am looking for that big blue book…” – how to find required reading?

Books

To find a certain book you need to know exact data. Use the catalogue separately or through SuperSearch. It is easier to find a book if you enter some keywords from the title and author’s surname.

Search in the catalogue.

Follow call numbers to find a book in the Reading Hall. If the book has an electronic version the link will direct you there.

Articles, e-journals, e-books

To find an article in SuperSearch enter the “article title” in quotation marks.
Check databases list and also thematic categorization.
To find e-books and e-journals, choose E-journals and e-books search platfrom from the opening page. 

“To Google or not to Google?” – Topic search

To make a successful topic search first create a topic sentence that contains 5-6 keywords, e.g. The banking sector and its macroeconomic environment in Southeast. 

If you like quick and efficient work and your aim is to find scholarly sources use SuperSearch. This is the default search box at the opening page. Enter some keywords then refine the results.

If you are an expert in searching, start your search with Advanced Search. Here you can add more keywords and filtering from different points of view (full-text, peer-review, etc.) is also possible. SuperSearch offers mainly English-language documents.

“Ctrl c- Ctrl v” – About references and plagiarism

References, reference manager softwares

During reading scholarly works take notes to be able to insert them as verbatim references or as a paraphrase. If you fail to do this, your thesis will be unauthentic and you might have been accused of plagiarism.

In-text references must contain the author’s surname and publishing year, in case of verbatim references add page number, too. From these in-text citations you need to create a reference list that comes to the end of your thesis. Check in advance which style you need to use (e.g. APA, Harvard).

To simplify your work, use a reference manager software (e.g. Mendeley, Zotero). They collect, store your documents even full-text articles. With some clicks you can insert references and create a reference list.

Plagiarism

If you miss presenting sources or your references are incorrect you commit plagiarism.

Thesis at Corvinus are checked with Ouriginal text similarity checker which is set by your supervisor in Moodle. If you use correct references and citations are not more than 50% of your texts, you will avoid plagiarism. High percentage in itself does not mean plagiarism, it is your supervisor who makes the final decision.

“As you write” – tips for a term paper

Start writing after you have collected literature and made annotations. It is advisable that you write first just a draft, later you can use it as a map. How to go on?
