Welcome to the resource guide for BLHS 120, a starting point for doing research for Writing in an Interdisciplinary Environment. Use the tabs above to find articles, books, dissertations, background information (secondary sources) and primary sources.
My contact information is on the right, so please get in touch with me if you have questions. I'm here to help, as are my colleagues! See Ask Us for many paths to help. There may well be a specialist on just your area of interest (e.g., public policy; sociology; government).
This San Jose State Univ. tool calculates deadlines for every stage of your writing/research process to help you complete your projects in time. There may be references to resources at San Jose State, but Georgetown will have similar resources.
Keep a Research Log for extended research. Use something like the following log to track which databases you've searched and what your actual search words were.
