Assignment | Proposal Essay with Research (Vasconcelos): Deeper Research

ENGL 1301 | Prof. M. Vasconcelos (Fall 2021)

From the Assignment

TWO documented sources are required. Do not cite more than FOUR total sources in Essay 3. Sources must be academic / library sources such as an academic journal or a book (these could be available electronically).


Your chosen topic will determine where you should look for research. Some library collections are multi-disciplinary, while others are much more focused.

You can save time by searching several EBSCO databases at once! Keep in mind -- there's fantastic content in non-EBSCO databases, too: don't feel limited to just these options just because of this trick.

Even More Databases:

Consider which disciplines apply to your specific topic when choosing your databases.
