Types of Sources You Can Use
Articles can include news, scholarly (peer-reviewed) research, or data and analysis of your topic.
Videos & DVDs
Videos and DVDs include both streaming online video and physical DVDs at the library. These are great sources for images, interviews, and (sometimes) statistics.
Books & eBooks
Books are a good source for connecting your topic to the "larger picture" by bringing in history or the social context (why your topic is important, etc.). You don't have to read the entire book to have it as a source-- you can use a smaller part of it if you like.
