Source Type Activity

  1. Skim the four resources below and determine whether it is a book chapter, journal article, news article, or magazine article. 
  2. What do you see that is similar about these resources? What is different? 
  3. Could you use each source in a compare and contrast paper? How? 

Search Strategies

Use “” quotations around more than one word to find an exact phrase. Ex: "greek letter societies" 

Use * to find multiples endings of the same word. Ex: teen* would find teen, teens, teenager, and teenagers
