Functional Fixedness

 

Functional fixedness is a cognitive bias that limits a person to using an object only in the way it is traditionally used. The concept of functional fixedness originated in Gestalt psychology, a movement in psychology that emphasizes holistic processing.  [1]

Off-Campus Access

Always access library materials through the ASU Library website to have maximum access, no matter where you are located.

Proxy.   Understand if you are accessing ASU LIbrary materials from off-campus you will need to proxy in.  Proxy means that even though you are working away from a campus IP address, you can demonstrate that you are a member of the ASU faculty or student body.  This proxy thing happens when you click on a restricted database/article and a pop-up window asks for your name and Banner ID.  This is a requirement of the publishers to protect their revenue stream from free riders.  When you proxy in, you acquire a campus IP address for only that session and you magically appear to be on-campus even though you are in your apartment or in Bhutan.

What about Google Scholar?

If you are using Google Scholar definitely always always always get there via the library's link (the middle gold tab on the Library homepage or the link in this guide) to get full-text where the Library is paying for it.  As you search and try to pull up an article, you will encounter a box asking you to log-in with your email login or with your Name and Banner ID. 

You can locate your Banner ID number on AppalNet.
