database, MS Access, instructions
This paper takes the reader through the thought process and actual instructions to create your own Microsoft Access database, or how to use the one provided with this paper. Also, instructions to use the HBLL resources of Compendex and RefWorks are covered. While this work was built specifically for Cookstoves research, it could be adapted to any research where you would need to maintain a record of the journal articles that you are using. It has been discovered that building a database is a time consuming and difficult work, but once done, Access provides an easy way to work with your information. Explanatory PowerPoint slides follow the paper.
The Library Student Research Grant program encourages outstanding student achievement in research, fosters information literacy, and stimulates original scholarship.
