Tips to guide your paper from Noel Studio


- make sure your topic is not TOO BROAD (too big, overreaching). Many topics touched upon in WGS 201 have been going on and written about for decades or centuries. Talk to your instructor.

-use the databases through the library web page. The box to the left will give you explicit instructions. Do not use web sites unless your instructor gives you explicit permission

-do not use too many terms or full phrases in the database search boxes, when in doubt contact a librarian
