ENGL 1012: The Short Story: Final Recommendations

Final Recommendations

16. Try searches in one or more of the remaining recommended databases (Project Muse, Humanities Source, etc.) and see what you find. Research is time-consuming, but you want to make sure you’re being comprehensive in your searching so you can find the best scholarly sources for your research topic. Your research topic will also evolve as you read and do more research.

Remember, even finding one article is a great start! Take a look at the bibliography of that article and it will lead you to other potential sources. Use OneSEARCH to check to see whether the BC Library owns that source.

Good luck!
