Books:

Search the library catalog  by keyword for topics like racism, immigration, women. Then use the book index or table of contents to determine if the 1930's are covered in the book. Books are a good choice for the historical aspects of your topic.  For current information, periodicals and web resources are better choices as they are updated more frequently.

  • EBSCO Discovery Search  (EDS) allows you to power search across many of our databases.  You will need to experiment with the keywords you use to search as those that work in one database may not work well in another.

 

Internet Resources:

Unlike database sources that have been selected specifically for high school research, internet sources need to be carefully evaluated prior to using them in a school paper. 


We use the CARS method of evaluation.  Review the video below.

Complete a CARS worksheet for any secondary source you access on the internet and use for this assignment.

You will need to sign in to your Poway  Google Drive (this is easy to access via Google Apps icon in MyPlan)

Click on CARS Worksheet linkSelect File, Make a Copy.

Rename the copy,  Last Name CARS

Share your source by copying the shared link and adding it to the annotation of your Noodletools citation for that source.
