SCA 211: Diversity and Social Change in the Global North: Introduction


This guide contains resources to help you find and evaluate sources for your projects, as well as general information about using the Library and Archives. Explore what's here and see how it informs your evolving topic.

  • Don't hesitate to ask if you've got questions! Send me an email - I enjoy helping you solve any research problems you have. We can work via email or set up a virtual or in person time to chat.
  • You can also find library and research help at the library's Information Desk or via Reference Services.
  • Use the Getting Started tab (above) when you dive into your project; consult the entire guide at all steps during the research process.

If you need a refresher on using the Library, consult our Library FAQs and overview of the Library. We also have a guide on how to do research well - use it to brush up and expand your research skills! There's also a guide on how to cite sources. And since everyone can use a refresher on how to find books in the library, we have a guide for that, too.

Annotated Bibliographies

Since one component of your project involves creating an annotated bibliography, you may want to look at examples from the following sources. Be sure that you are also following the assignment prompt from your professor!

Library Session Slides

If you want a refresher from our library session, the slides from class are posted here.

Additional Guides

In addition to this research guide, there are several others that will help you connect with resources that will inform your topics:
