Hey! This LibGuide will help you through the process of research for your project. Feel free to contact me if you need help at any time.
1. Define Topic: What do you know? Verify with Background Info.
2. Devise Strategy: What do you want to find out? List keywords.
3. Search Sources: Look at Books, Articles, web sites, etc.
EVALUATE what you're doing: Change your keywords/database; Are you finding appropriate items?
Your first assignment is to find biographical information on an assigned composer:
We're talking when and where they were born, when and where they died, nationality, personal life (family, health, personality), career (significan places, people, employers or patrons, means of earning a living, financial situation), and music (style of composition, general characteristics, types of compositions they wrote).
You have to find at least 3 different sources and document them using MLA style. Only one source can be a website, and it must be CREDIBLE. Online eBooks or articles from a library database is not considered a "website." You may use your textbook as a fourth source, but not as one of your three main sources.
