Academic research requires a thorough investigation into the body of literature that has been published – and sometimes even unpublished – about a given topic. You must examine and refer to scholarly sources when completing academic assignments (unless otherwise indicated by your instructor). Refering to scholarly sources will:
- Add depth to your understanding.
- Strengthen your argument.
- Reduce bias and misconceptions.
START FIRST with the library website. Library resources are built around your program, are screened and verified for credibility, provide targeted results using advanced search, are copyright licensed and freely available to the Sheridan community for most educational purposes.
