Finding Secondary Sources
Your final paper assignment requires your research be supported with secondary sources which must come from journals, eBook chapters, or authoritative websites.
To assist you in your search, we've identified a number of specific journals you can use for your research. This guide will provide you with instructions for accessing those journals, tips on searching for specific articles within those journals, and information on properly citing your research.
You will use the tabs at the top of the page to navigate this guide. The information you'll find on those tabs is described below. If you are attempting to access these resources from off campus, you must log in to your library account using your barcode number and PIN. You can find instructions on creating a PIN here.
