When conducting research, it's wise to consult a variety of types of sources.
The purpose of this exercise is to give you practice finding 3 types of commonly used research sources:
Books in the college library collection
Articles in periodicals (especially those in trade & scholarly journals)
Websites from government agencies
Recording information in a diary is a helpful technique for keeping track of your searches and the sources you find. Attached is a simple template you may use to record the 3 sources you find during this exercise.
Research can be challenging. If you don't easily find an information source, or if you have any questions about research or citation, feel free to contact a college librarian any time for help.
