Assignment | Research Project ENGL 1301 (Khalaf): Finding Information

Prof. Paula Khalaf | ENGL 1301 | Fall 2020

Before You Research

Scholarly articles are not the place to start your research. First, you need to get familiar enough with your topic to narrow it down, and for that you need more general information. This will help you develop context for your topic as well as get to know the specialized terms used by experts.

Suggested Databases

News Sources

These fall into the "reputable but not scholarly" area, but they're very useful for getting more current information than scholarly sources can provide.
