Reference Page

Include a reference page with the documentary listed and class sources you used. 

You may also bring in outside sources (not required). 

An excellent place to start is the “Web of Science DatabaseLinks to an external site.”, which you can access via the FAU library website (you do not have to be on campus to access the database – you will just have to log in via off-campus access).

If you are a fan of Google, be sure to check out the library’s tailored google scholar search. It allows you to access the content available through FAU directly and request it via inter-library loan (again a login is required to do this off campus).

You must list your four resources in reference formatting APA or ASA.

Don’t forget that the librarians are available to help you with your searches!
