This Research Guide will help you find sources for your final research project in Liz Roewe's ENGL 102 class. The assignment asks that you:
Browse these library research databases to identify an historical event for your paper.
Background Information from Reference Books
Here's an example of how you might use the eBook Collection to find first hand accounts (primary sources). Try searching your event along with words like diaries, letters, speeches, interviews, memoirs, and journals.
Periodicals (magazines, newspapers, scholarly journals)
Here's an example of how you can do a more precise search in Academic Search Complete by changing the search field. In this case the field has been changed to Subject Terms. This search will only retrieve articles that are indexed under the subjects of the Vietnam War and the Draft.
You may want to consider limiting your Google search to a particular domain, such as a .edu or .gov.
