Research Methods in TESOL

This researh guide is for the Research Methods in TESOL class. It is a work in progress, so come back later to see other resources that I have added.

Library Resources & Services

  • APU Libraries  
    There are several library facilities available for student use, including the Darling Library & Stamps Theological Library (on West Campus) and the Marshburn Library (on East Campus). All APU libraries allow student access, check out and computer searching. Students are encouraged to use the resources in the libraries and to use the APU databases conveniently from your own home through the library website. To access the library website go to www.apu.edu/library.
  • Library Catalog & Quick Search  
    Find titles of books, eBooks (full text), journals and media items owned by the APU Libraries.

    Using Quick Search: From the Libraries’ Web site, locate the light gray box on the top right side of the page. Enter your keywords then select "search".

    Using the traditional catalog:
    From the Libraries’ Web site, locate the light gray box on the top right side of the page. Be sure to select “APU catalog” from the dropdown menu. Do a keyword, title, subject, or isbn search for your topic.

    Both Quick Search & Catalog: Click the “Request this Item” link to submit a request for the book to be delivered to the library of your choice.
  • Link+  
    Titles of the 30 million books owned by 53 participating libraries. This service is free.

    From the Library Web site ‐ Click on “More Search Options,” then “LINK+ Catalog— Advanced Search”. Do a keyword, title, or subject search for your topic.

    Click the “Request this Item” link to submit a request for the book. Requested books will be mailed to APU (which is normally 2‐4 business days after you submit your request). You will be notified through APU email when it is ready to pick up. You can also pick up items at any LINK+ participating library.
  • ILEAC (Inland Empire Academic Library Cooperative)
    Access library resources from other participating IEALC libraries. It is a cooperative arrangement between 18 academic libraries in San Bernardino, Riverside, Los Angeles, and Orange Counties. Go to http://iealc.wikispaces.com/Membership+List to view a list of participating libraries.

    It allows students to visit and borrow materials from participating libraries. Students must show their APU ID card and an IEALC card at the participating library in order to borrow books. This service is not available for faculty and staff. You can apply for the card by going to http://www.apu.edu/library/services/consortia/form/
  • Research Databases  
    Find journal/magazine/newspaper articles, statistics, book reviews, ebooks, and encyclopedia entries on your topic. Many databases provide instant access to the full text of the articles you find.

    From the Libraries’ Web site, click the “All Databases” link. Select a database from the alphabetical title list. Go to the Database/Journals tab for more information on specific databases that are related to Research Methods in TESOL.

    Do a keyword search for your topic in the database you have selected. Most of the databases allow you to limit your search to peer‐reviewed publications.
  • Periodical Finder/ Fulltext Finder
    Locate the full text of articles for which you have publication information. View the complete list of all journals, magazines, and newspapers to which the APU Libraries subscribe.

    From the Libraries’ Web site, click on “more search options”, then on “Periodical Finder.” Search for the journal title (not the article title). If the journal is available full‐text, you will see a link. Click on the link to browse for the article. If no link is available, APU does not subscribe to the journal; you will need to use ArticleReach to obtain a copy from another library. Some journals are available in multiple databases, so check the date coverage listed.
  • Article Finder / ArticleReach  
    Request copies of articles from other libraries.

    Library Web site ‐ Click on “More Search Options,” then “Article Finder” (directly)
    OR through any library database

    If the Periodical Finder and/or Full Text Finder indicate that APU does not subscribe to the journal article that you need, you can request it through ArticleReach. This can be done from the databases.
    1) Once you have found an article in a database and it is not fulltext, click on the "Full-Text Finder" Link. If it is not fulltext proceed to step 2.
    2) Click on the "ArticleReach" Link. Simply, indicate that you are affiliated with Azusa Pacific University. On the next page verify the article information and click Submit.
  • Interlibrary Loan (ILL)  
    Request copies of books and articles from other libraries.

    From the Library Web site ‐Click “more search options”, ‐Fill out the “Article Finder” form.

    This service is free. You may keep the articles you receive. This service may take a minimum of 7-10 working days.
  • Google Scholar Advanced Search  
    APU's electronic holdings data (Citations and abstracts to scholarly articles, books and reports from scholarly publishers, universities and professional societies) is available on Google Scholar. This means that links to full text will be provided within Google Scholar results when APU has subscription access to the article.

    Go to http://scholar.google.com/, ‐Click the “Advanced Search” link.
    Full text is usually available for a fee; check Article Finder to see if APU already subscribes to the title for free access.
  • Research Guides  
    LibGuides are created to help you learn about how you can use the library resources more effectively.
