Mr. Hurner's 10 AM Database Class

Here's where you can be honest. I don't hand out grades, I just use your suggestions to improve the presentation for the next class!

I would appreciate your CONSTRUCTIVE feedback and comments concerning this presentation.

1. Do you think you'll use any of these databases? which ones? If not, why?

2. What is your generation's opinion about plagiarism? Do you think you will ever publish, and if you did, would you want credit for your work?

3. Any other comments or suggestions, either about this presentation or the library in general?

  • Your lesson on database resources was very helpful, even though the computers wouldn't work. I feel that this lesson will help me in the future for looking up material I might need for a research paper.

  • Unfortunately, the computer was not working properly, but what was shown was educational. It will be a help to the research that I will need for reports,essays,etc. Thank you for your time.

  • I actually liked the orientation. It helped me understand the library resources on-line alot better. If I had to use any kind of search engine I would use the library's or possibly google or yahoo. I wished there was a way we could've been able to view the rest of the orientation but that's allright.

  • I think that the websites that we were able to learn about were very helpful. Xreferplus will be very helpful in my Psychology course and so will netlibrary.
    I am in the process of writing two children's books (that will not be used for reference) but will be published. I know that if I ever wrote a book for reference, I would definitely want credit for my work.

  • 1. Yes i think I will use these resources. I am not sure which ones yet because I do not know know about all of them

    2. I feel that you should not plagarize on purpose. I mean i do not think professors should be harsh if they see a small case of accidental plagarism.

    3. Thank you for giving us this little session about the resources. Unfortunately your computer was malfunctioning.

  • Mr. hurner
    I will use the xrefer data base. it seems to contain alot of valuble information. my opinion about plagerism is that I think it is wrong because if you use someones paper your stealing and I dont like it when people steal.It means they have no moral values and all they want is the quick and easy way out so I dont believe in plagerism...

  • Thanks for visiting our classroom! Although your computer didn't work correctly, I enjoyed the presentation. I wasn't going to use the website to help my research but you helped to change my mind. Thanks again!
    (Hope that wasn't to harsh lol)

  • I do not beleive that I will use any of the list websites. If I did publish anything i would not want to get credit, because i know of all the work that it take to give credit, so why put people through that.

  • When you explained how to do things in class, it seemed pretty easy to understand, that being the case if one paid attention. If one drifted off in their mind for a moment, they might get lost.
    You also seem optimistic when you explain things, and that makes the learning experience more enjoyable.

  • I appreciate that you took your time to show and explain how to use the computer in an educational way. I never knew how to do any of the tools that you demonstrated. I am sure that I will use the information that you gave me.
    I am planning on writing and publish my own book one day. I know that I will not want others to plagiarise offof my work. When I write I always think of plagiarism of stealing someone's hard work.
    I learnered a lot of important information. Thank you!
