Lab Assignment: Getting Started with Online Research
- one printed book
- one article in a peer-reviewed, academic journal
- one website
- and at least one additional source of any type you choose.
Your research might start with a Google search or a Wikipedia entry, but you'll need to go beyond those initial searches. For books and journal articles, you'll need to go to the Parks Library website. Once you've found some relevant materials, you might even need to SET FOOT INSIDE THE LIBRARY (!) to get them.
When you've found at least four sources, click on "edit my submission," then copy and paste the contents of the Word document into the text box.
