Guidelines for Research

1) Search the databases and websites linked below for your topic. Remember to try alternate search terms.

2) When using a search engine to find additional sources, be critical of the sources you find. 

Use the ABCs of website evaluation to determine if the source is credible:

A = Authority   Who is the author or which organization created the website?

B = Bias    Is the website biased by its creator's purpose or mission? What can you tell about the purpose of the site based on the domain name (.com, .edu, .gov, .org)?

C = Current Content    Was the content created recently enough for your research needs?

3)  Use NoodleTools to track your citations and take notes.
