A research guide for students in Andersson's ENG104 class.

Find or Choose an Author and/or Work

The first step in your assignment is to choose a story to read (or that you've read) to analyze and interpret. This will be considered your primary source.

Find What Others Are Saying About Your Author/Work

Your task now is to find and incorporate what others have written about your author and/or work.  You'll use the Evans Library databases to find college-level articles and incorporate parts of those articles into your writing.  These articles will be your secondary sources. Remember, your ideas matter the most!

Evans Library Tip:

Use Boolean logic and keywords to your advantage!

Boolean Logic

"August Wilson" AND "The Piano Lesson"

"August Wilson" AND ("The Piano Lesson" OR Christianity)

"August Wilson" NOT reviews


Discover books, articles, videos and more

You can also use our Databases by Subject Areas page.
