Hi students, this is Sarah, the librarian, not to be confused with your professor, also named Sarah Tavis. My last name is Kaip!

1.   For this discussion, find 2 credible sources using SPSCC library databases. Do not use Google or some other library. There are videos on the left to and suggested library databases. What's credible? Think about relevance, currency, expertise, and substance.

2.  Find the permalinks OR the complete citations (Permalinks are preferred, and here is a 3-minute video on how to find a permalink). Do NOT paste the URL. It times out so I won't be able to see the source.

3.  Post to the discussion board the following information:

  • Your topic
  • The permalinks or complete citations to 2 sources (You will need a 3rd eventually for your bibliography but only 2 for this discussion.)
  • Explain how you will use the sources in your paper

Posts are due May 15 by 11:59pm. The librarian will grade the discussion on the 16th. Check for feedback. If I ask for revisions, you will have until the 17th at 11:59pm to do it again for full credit. This activity is worth 10 points.

Feel free to ask me any questions. I will check the discussion board frequently over the next few days.

Sarah Kaip
