Your Assignment & Quick Start

Welcome! This course guide has been created to assist you with finding library resources related to your final research paper for Identity in South America. Please feel free to contact me at any point throughout the research process if you need help.

For this research paper, you will need to include one or more of the works you've read in class (primary sources), as well as a minimum of three works of literary or cultural criticism (secondary sources). These three secondary sources can be scholarly books or peer-reviewed journal articles.

You may also want to find background information on your topic. Encyclopedias, reference manuals, and newspapers are helpful for this and should be cited in your final paper if you use them but they do not count towards your three secondary sources.

Use these databases to find secondary sources:
