Below, I've given you a number of citations. Your job is to track down the full copy of each source. Working in groups:
1. Identify what kind of source it is - is it a book? a journal article? an edited book? something else?
- For help decoding source types, consult the Decoding Citations box on the Tracking Down Materials tab on this guide.
2. Write down where you searched for the source - the library catalog? a database? Google? If the item is in the library, please go find it. If it isn't in the library, describe the steps you took to find the full copy.
- To figure out where to search, consult the Tracking Down Journal Articles or Tracking Down Books boxes on the Tracking Down Materials page.
- To learn how to track down materials we don't own, use the Interlibrary Loan box on the Tracking Down Materials page.
3. Examine the source. Tell us one thing you found interesting about the source.
Be prepared to discuss your findings with the entire class. If you don't find every source, don't worry. We learn from searches that don't work well, too.
