Do Additional Research

When you are evaluating your first draft, are there a few points that you might need to illustrate with some extra facts or statistics? Do you need one more article to support a particular point of view?

 This is a good time to ask a librarian  for help, as he or she might be able to give you some search tips for finding what you need quickly.

You also might want to try the advanced search features in some of the article databases , by searching for: 

  • Articles by authors you have already quoted.   Perhaps they’ve published other  articles on your topic.
  • Additional articles that have been published in a journal you’ve already found useful.      Many databases let you search for keywords or subjects limited to a  particular newspaper, journal or magazine.

 If you have used databases that cover a wide range of subjects for your research so far, consider using a more specialized database that would just provide you with articles about a particular subject area.   Find suggested databases in the Library Guides.
