Your Sources Depend Upon Your Topic

Depending upon the recency of your topic (like "the Wall" or DACA), some of you may need to rely on newspaper articles, websites and government documents instead of or in addition to scholarly books and journal articles. A good first step for everyone is to find background information using your search terms in Wikipedia, online library reference sources, Google or Google Scholar. As you get further along in the process, you will need to rely on Discover (the library catalog) and databases. You will also need to carefully evaluate the source of your information.
