After today's session, you'll be able to get help from a librarian anytime, explore and refine topic ideas for research papers, identify search keywords and related terms, find relevant articles in library databases, and cite sources in MLA format.

Recommended Databases

  • Opposing Viewpoints and SIRS Knowledge Source are good resources for browsing topic ideas.
  • Once you've explored some topics and identified relevant keywords (search terms) related to those topics, search EBSCOhost for sources including scholarly journal articles.
