    4.  Search for sources from individual library databases:

         Or search across several databases at once:

    5.  Document and annotate your sources using MLA citation

     

     

    BEAM Model

    Background  sources that provide context
    Exhibit  sources that illustrate the issue, e.g. primary sources
    Argument  expert witnesses, use to argue or complicate your argument.  Credentials important here
    Method  framework, theoretical approach…  most difficult, for more advanced students, students in their major (e.g. World Systems Theory, Feminist Framework, Marxism)

    Consider your sources:  what kind of information do they provide?  How do they help you answer your research questions?
