How to use this Guide

Use the tabs above to get started on your research.

Reference sources will give you general background information in relatively short entries and can cover many broad topics.  Reference sources are often a good place to start.

Circulating Books are a bit more in depth and quite a bit longer than reference sources but if you find one exactly on your topic, well, you've hit a gold mine!

Articles are usually on more specific aspects of a topic for example they may be about one major achievement of a person, one interpretation of an event, etc.



Research Paper basics (adapted from syllabus): 

A (minimum) five-page research paper with an additional works cited/references page on any approved topic related to the class. 

The paper itself MUST be word-processed: double spaced, with a font of 10 and normal 1" margins.

Complete sentences and standard English structure are expected.  

At least 3 reasonable [academic/credible] sources for your paper, [cited in-text and in your works cited page in either MLA or APA style, with APA preferred].

The point breakdown for the paper is as follows: 2 points for the topic being turned in on time, 3 points for the paper being turned in on time, 25 points for the 5 pages minimum, 30 points on content, 10 on writing style, 3 on having the three sources required, 5 on the types of sources, 5 on the works cited page, and 15 points for citing the sources correctly in the paper.
