PHI 150: Science and Human Culture (Hamer): Home

Introduction

This guide was created to help you with research for your PHI 150 research project. If you need more help finding resources on your individual topics, feel free to contact me. You can find my contact information in the box on the left. Feel free to email, call, or speak with me in person. I'd be happy to meet and discuss your topic, or if you have questions about any resources I've listed on the guide itself.

 

If you need more help with the research process, Milner Librarians have created a "beginning research" tutorial to help with initial questions about the research process. Click this link for more information!


Guide Rundown:

  • Topic Selection: If you're having trouble getting started with this paper, this tab may be able to help. There are links to periodicals that may help you find a topic, as well as some thoughts on how to begin research once you've found a topic.
  • CRAAP Test: Because you are not limited to using scholarly articles, it is up to you to determine whether an article is credible and presenting accurate information. This page will help guide you to making that decision. 
  • 5 Ws: This is another page that discusses an evaluation strategy for assessing different resources.
  • Library Catalog: This page should help you navigate Milner's catalog to find books and other resources.
  • Library Databases: I have links to different Milner databases that you can use to find resources (both scholarly and non-scholarly resources).
  • Citing Assistance: This is a link to another guide that will help you cite sources in a variety of styles.
