Assignment | Engineering Discipline Paper (Guzman): Information Sources

Fall 2020 | ENGR 1201 | Prof. Guzman

How Information is Created

Some of the questions for the discipline paper require very current information. Information source types have different publication time frames. The information in a newspaper source contains today's news. Other questions require specific trade-related (industry-related) information. The "inside knowledge" of a trade journal is more important than the immediacy of the publication date. Pause and consider which types of sources in this guide will give the best or most appropriate information. 

  • Describe how the global marketplace has altered your chosen discipline.
    • Try the New York Times if current events appear to alter the marketplace.
