Hello and welcome! This guide has been created by librarians at Northern Virginia Community College to help you find books, articles, videos, and other types of resources related to your assignment.

If you have any questions or need help finding information, you can contact your librarian via phone, e-mail, chat, or in person.

Research Assignment

You will be learning how to find relevant articles from newspapers, magazines and online databases on one of three topics:

  • Causes and effects of social isolation
  • Effect of technology on human intellect and thinking skills
  • The benefits and consequences of playing video games

You will need to learn how to find articles, use database tools to cite them using MLA format, and how to make the distinction between a high quality source and a low quality source.
