Library Guide: Finding Articles for Your Discussion Post

image of magnifying glassDiscussion assignments often require you to conduct research to support your discussion response.

The library guide, Finding Articles for Your Discussion Post, will get you started with some basic research techniques you can use in the library databases to find articles on your discussion topic. Generally, anywhere from 1-5 articles should be sufficient to support your discussion points.

Click on the tabs to jump to pages that will teach you skills such as picking the most appropriate database, creating an effective search strategy, and managing and evaluating your results.

Have other research or library questions? There are many useful library guides on the Library Guides home page. If you still have questions, the librarians are here to help, so contact us!
