The Research Process


Class Assignment

For your library instruction assignment, please find one resource, either primary or secondary, on your research paper topic. The resource should be either a scholarly article or a book. Post your name and a link to your resource in this Google Doc.


Be prepared to answer the following questions about your resource:

  • How did you find this resource (what database, catalog, etc., and what keywords did you use)?

  • How would you evaluate this resource/how do you know it’s reliable? (You can use the CRAAP test.)

  • How will this resource help you write your research paper?

  • Is this a primary or secondary resource?
