When You Get an Assignment
Let's say that your instructor asks
you to write a paper on
what your future may look like when you graduate. You decide
to research the opportunities available to someone with an undergraduate
degree. You can use either popular or scholarly articles to support
your paper. Since this is a cross-disciplinary topic, a good place
to begin is with a general article database rather than a subject database.
On the next
page you will practice searching for articles about college
graduates and careers using ProQuest, a general article database.
