This guide provides some useful starting places and strategies for doing research for this course. I'm happy to work with you on any aspect of your research, from developing a research question to finding, evaluating, and citing sources. Feel free to email me or make an appointment on my calendar.

SuperSearch can be a great place to cast a wide net, since it searches almost everything the library has (journal articles, books, films, newspaper articles, and more), in one easy-to-use interface. You can use the filters on the results screen to refine your search and improve your results.
Because SuperSearch contains so much content from so many different kinds of sources and academic disciplines, it can sometimes be hard to focus a search to get the most relevant results. At the same time, SuperSearch is also not comprehensive and can miss key sources. To search with more focus, precision, and depth, be sure to try the specialized databases recommended on this guide, or search the library catalog for books and films.
