College Writing 1--Regan

Guide to research for College Writing 1 students for Prof. Regan

Finding Sources for Your College Writing Assignments

Professor Regan requires you to have:

  • 2 scholarly books (begin with at least 4-5)
  • 3 scholarly articles (begin with at least 6-7)
  • Books and articles need to published in the last 10 years (2006-current)
  • Don't forget to print a copy of the article citation or book record to hand in to Professor Regan!

 It's always wise to collect more than what you think you will need. This is especially true if you have to rely on interlibrary loan (borrowing from other libraries) and don't have the book or full text article to consult immediately.

The information on this guide will help you to discover different types of resources.  Please ask your instructor or one of our librarians for help if you have difficulty using the sources or you just don't know what else to try!  We'd be very happy to work with you to discover the sources you need!

Sample Search

For sample purposes, one topic will be used to search for books and articles.  Our research proposal is the need to educate Newman University students about how to identify victims of human sex trafficking and to offer solutions for prevention and rescue efforts.
