Navigating the Library Homepage As you begin your research process, one good thing to review is the Information Guide the librarians have put together for students enrolled in English 302S: Go to http://infoguides.gmu.edu/engl302b OR you can go directly to the GMU Library home page: Go to library.gmu.edu A good place to start here is under the broad category “Get Help” - Click on “Tutorials” -Scroll down and click on “How to Find Articles” -Click on “Article Types” A chart will show you the characteristics of the two types of articles this assignment requires you to find from: (1) a popular source (written for a “general readership” or the general population, i.e. “everyone” (Washington Post, NYT, Time Magazine, Newsweek) and (2) a publication written for business professionals (WSJ, Forbes, Economist, etc.). From this page you can click on “How to find articles” (upper right-hand corner), which take you to another page that explains the library databases – collections of “holdings” including everything from daily newspapers, popular magazines, to academic journals. You will then be instructed to: Return to the library home page: library.gmu.edu Under “Research Tools” (on Left): Click on “Research Databases” -A new page will open up showing a broad list of categories containing GMU’s 500 databases and their holdings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
