You have been given topics about Revolutions in Latin America. I suggest to do the following:
Step 1: General info
Find some basic or general information about the topic. Where do you usually find this info?
When you do this note:
Using what you write down is an easy way to find more info related to your topic.
Step 2: Define your topic
Now that you know some general info about your topic, what specific information do you need to find?
Talk to your partner about what research question you want to answer. You need to do this throughout your research - you will likely change your topic focus depending on what information you can find.
Step 3: Find info from bibliographies / further readings
To do this you first need to figure out if you are searching for a book, journal article, newspaper, video etc.
Journal list help:
Most journals in the journal list are not free. To access those, you have to be in the library.
After searching for your journal name in the journal list, compare the date coverage to the date of publication of the article you are looking for.
If that date is covered follow the link. The link will take you to the journal, not your specific article. Now search for your specific article.
When you find it, look for a pdf link to the article.
Step 4: Finding more info
For book or video: search for your keywords in the Library Catalog.
For journal articles on history of Revolutions in Latin America there are 3 choices (you have to be in the BU library to use these)
You can search the 2 Ebscohost databases at the same time - Ask me how!
