ENGL 2A: Diversifying Your Sources

Activity: Diversifying Sources

Now that you've learned more about library databases, this activity will give you the opportunity to consider your topic from multiple disciplinary perspectives. You will learn how to use library disciplinary databases to find those perspectives. There are two ways to do so: you can either browse by database off the library homepage and/or you can use a research guide like this one where a librarian suggests some databases.

Step One: Read the Google and the Library introduction.

Activity: Practice using disciplinary databases to search for diverse perspectives. Access the activity worksheet here and make a copy.
