The Research Process

 

QuickSearch

Search EBSCO Discovery
 

Class Exercise 1

In pairs, please use the handout to explore Quick Search.

 

Class Exercise 2

For your library instruction assignment, please find three resources, either primary or secondary, on your research paper topic. A least one should be retrieved from a database and at least one should come from an online resource. Provide a citation for each resource and answer the following questions about the resource:

  • How did you find this resource (what database, search engine, 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?
  • Is this a scholarly resource? How do you know?

 

This assignment will not be due during this library session. But I would like you to post a link to one resource you've found in this Google Doc. Be ready to answer how you found the resource and why you chose it since we will discuss some of your resources in class.

 

The hidden costs of war

 

I spent years putting the war out of my mind - George DePuydt (pictured above), 753rd Tank Battalion, 1942-45

Something died in me at Peleliu - Eugene Sledge, author of With the Old Breed

Something of the past always remains, if only as a haunting presence - Dominick LaCapra

With links to a variety of resources just for your discipline, this guide is a great place to start your research!  Remember that these are only some of the sources that may be useful to you.  Please contact me for help with any of your research, Sarah Penniman, x1428 or e-mail AskUs.

Special thanks to Pete DePuydt for preparing this resource guide!
