Your research librarian has put together a guide for your assignment needs. This guide will be helpful when finding information for your presentation.
We have already reviewed your topics and you can find valid, accurate, and credible sources for a variety of topics in the resources we've listed on this guide.
Remember that your research and presentations will be viewed by instructors and peers who are expecting to see academic resources, and not just information you found using Google which are questionable and often times may lack credibility or factual correctness.
Follow the instructions below:
1) Find Books
Use this page to find print and ebook resources on your topic.
This is where you'll find articles of information for your topic. There are multiple databases you can use, and you should them as they cover varied aspects of your topic. You'll also be able to find information about your profession, art, culture, and gender.
3) Find Reference/Background Information
When in doubt about your topic use these resources to find general information; encyclopedias, dictionaries, and handbooks
4) Find Images

The process of research writing is a step-by-step procedure to researching your paper. At times you may find yourself revising and re-evaluating your topic and paper. When in doubt about your topic seek information from encyclopedias, dictionaries, and handbooks. Once you have found enough information on your topic start to gather your resources.
Once you have located all your information, it is important to evaluate the authority and quality of the information to make sure your information is creditable, truthful, and reliable.
Finally cite your sources. Citing gives credit to the author/person whose work you are using. By citing your sources properly, you avoid plagiarizing..
