Use the worksheet given to you in class to determine keywords that you will use for your research.
The worksheet will walk you through searches in Cavalog and Academic Search Complete. You should search at least one other library database. The tabs across the top of this page will help you determine which will be the most useful for you depending on your topic.
If you did not receive the worksheet, it is attached below.
Though the citations in the databases are USUALLY correct, they are not error-proof.
Please double check any citations that you receive or copy from a database against the MLA cheat sheet above!
You are allowed to have 1 website as a source. Make sure it is a good one!
The Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL) is a great resource when citing soruces with MLA style (among others). It not only provides examples in a format and style guide but also gives the theory behind citation styles and why they are used.
