Welcome to the course guide for ENG 101. After participating in the ENG 101 Library Instruction class, you should be able to do the following:
- Given a broad research topic, write a a clear-cut, manageable research question or statement. If necessary, use the 4W questions (who, what, where, when) to formulate your question.
- Given a research topic, compile a list of search terms or keywords.
- Understand the differences between Google and Library resources.
- Using the AU library's catalog or the OhioLINK catalog, find one relevant book on your topic.
- For your research topic, access general article index database (Academic Search Complete) or a discipline specific database (such as Education Research Complete), and find one relevant article on your topic.
- Understand that you do not need to use every article or book you find. Only use the items that will answer your questions and support your paper.
