ENG 1050 Introduction to College Writing (K. Smith) Spring 2020


1) Review this entire course guide by browsing the blue tabs on the left menu! 
There is a lot of helpful information that will assist you through the research process and show you how to use the many resources that McQuade Library provides.  Go through each of the blue tabs on the left side of this page.  Pages have videos and supplemental information to help you learn.


2) Watch this video
Lyena would prefer to meet with you in person (and stinks at making videos), but here's a quick hello and a bit about your task!


3) Make a copy of this google doc

Go to File -> Make a Copy

Please rename the new document. Put your name and '10' for section J, '12' for section K (the hours you met on campus) in document name.  See Professor Smith's instructions for details on naming the document.

4)  Fill out activity and share it (via google docs) with Librarian Lyena Chavez to get credit for completing this exercise.

This activity is aimed to give you practice searching the library's search tools.  Choose a sample topic and then fill out this activity. 

We don't want this to be a stressful activity!  If you have questions relating to the activity or if you get stuck, please use the chat box to chat with a McQuade Librarian, or email librarian Lyena Chavez.
