This assignment is designed to sharpen skills in using Davis Library resources.
1. Take a few moments to brainstorm at least 3 keywords that you think would best help you find relevant information about a topic for your class. Write them down in the space provided.
2. Now that you have brainstormed those keywords, it’s time to put them to use! Find one book in the library catalog and two articles, one in a discipline specific database, the other in a general database. Once you have found a relevant title in the library catalog, try to find the subject headings within the record of the title.
Scholarly Journals versus Popular Publications:
Anatomy of a scholarly article (Source NCSU Libraries)
Can't find the article, book, or report you need at our library? You can request it from another library through interlibrary loan.
