Library Assignments for this Class
Your professor has given you this assignment, due Friday, and this link is for an overview of library resources to help you
(a) find books or articles, and
(b) use the EasyWriter online resource for assistance with creating your bibliography entries.
Where Do I Start?
Research takes time.
- Choose a topic that really interests you. Start with your textbook and course materials, conversations with other students in the class and, of course, your professor. Then browse reference sources and/or Google to begin your exploration and find ideas.
- Explore more in depth. Read what others have published in books or periodical articles that you could develop into a topic.
- Develop and use a Search Strategy:
- Once you have identified a topic, write it as a question.
- Think of as many words as you can to describe your topic. Add more terms that you discover as you search.
- Combine the terms using Boolean Logic (AND, OR, NOT) to get more relevant sources
- Be flexible: You may decide to modify your topic as you gain knowledge about your topic.
