About Your Essays
Before you begin, make sure you understand the assignment. You should be able to answer the following questions:
- When is the assignment due?
- How many sources do I need?
- What type of sources do I need? Books, articles, websites?
- Can I use the Web or just the library databases?
Students and instructors often confuse the terms "online", "Internet", or "Web" when specifying which sources can be used for a paper. When an instructor says "no Internet sources", that usually means "no Google"sources. Instructors prefer that you use the College's online resources for some or all of your research.
When in doubt, ask your instructor!
