Finding Sources for Project Two

Discussion: Strategies and Approaches for Gathering Sources

Now that you’ve read and viewed all the materials on finding sources. Let’s discuss a specific example:

Last year, I had a first-year student who moved here from New York City. She is not shocked or surprised by the number of homeless people she saw, but she noticed how disturbing the presence of so many homeless people was for many of her classmates who do not come from big cities. She started her second project with a general objective of learning more about homelessness in Chicago. 

Starting with the resources in our library and then including any additional places to search for primary or secondary sources, outline how this student might begin to gather research to learn more about homelessness in Chicago.
