Library Research Hunt (Quiz)
General Guidelines: The aim of this assignment is to familiarize you with some of the resources available in the library, and, by extension, to help you identify the kinds of materials you will encounter as an English major. In doing so, you should feel free to consult with librarians. However, you are not to ask them to do the work for you. In other words, you need to do the preliminary legwork before approaching the library staff. This means you will need to tell the librarians where you have already searched & what you have found so far. All resources may be found using library resources, either through the online catalog & databases or by serendipitous browsing. Only one question requires the use of the Internet, therefore it is the only time you may cite a resource from the Internet.
You will need to take a picture or scan the resource to show where you have found the answer. For an example, look at the page scans for your citation assignments.
Remember when visiting Special Collections:
If you pull a book from the shelf to answer one of the questions below be sure to place on the re-shelving carts when you are done. Please do not check them out as others in the class may be looking for the same resource.
Due Date: Beginning of class on Wednesday, Oct. 23 @ 2pm. Email your completed assignment with a subject of “Last Name_Research Hunt.” Also, label your doc in the same form.
Formatting: You will submit your answers, citations & pics/ scans in a MS Word document (no PDF’s) or Google Doc (shareable link – be sure you have the public view set). Submit one file including answers, Works Cited, & pics/ scans of the items.
***Remember you have the class research guide, citation guides, MLA Style Center Online, etc. to help you format***
