Find What Others Are Saying About Your Topic

You task is to find and incorporate what others have written about your topic or subject.  Use the library's databases to find college-level sources and incorporate parts of those into your paper.  These sources will be your secondary sources. Remember, your ideas matter the most!      

Remember, your research assignment asks you to "use one of the Evans Library website,

find one article/essay (from a book or a periodical) that supports the opinion of your thesis."
