Welcome to the second module of TUX301, for Students in Transition. In the Case for this Module, we will cover the Online Library. You will learn how to use the Summon search tool and conduct refined searches. In the SLP, you will also evaluate a website.
*Module 2 – Case
Begin by watching the videos below on how to use the Summon tool.

(Or read the information in pdf format in Summon Tutorial 1 and Summon Tutorial 2.)
Pick a research topic that you are interested in exploring using the Trident Summon Library search. Start with a broad topic (guidelines below) and narrow it. Use the search tips in the video. Create a template similar to the example below (choose your own topic) and show the search result numbers as you narrow and refine your topic. Identify two articles that would be of interest to you. Save these files into a folder as shown in the second video (advanced). Once saved, convert your articles to APA format and paste them underneath your search. This is a huge timesaver when it comes to listing your references in the proper APA format.
Research Topic Guidelines:
a. If you are in the BSBA/BSHRM program, find a topic that relates to Finance, Marketing, Economics, Accounting, Leadership, Human Resource management, or General Business.
b. If you are in the BSHS program, find a topic that relates to Health Care Management, Environment and Occupational Health and Safety, Health Education, Emergency and Disaster Management, or Public Health issues.
c. If you are in the BSCS/BSITM program, find a topic that relates to Cyber Security, Network Administration, Business Systems Analysis, Information Security, or IT Project Management.
In addition, write a 1-page reflection paper on what you learned from the video library exercise. Include the table and the paper in one Word document.
