    • Fantasy
    • Arabian Nights
    • Norse mythology
    • Ursula Le Guin
    • Arthurian romance
  • Search PITTCat+ and subject-oriented databases.
  • Revise your topic. Determine how you will answer your question.
  • Evaluate your resources carefully.
  • Don't forget that you can always ask a librarian for help!

This worksheet will help you to develop a search strategy and understand how to evaluate a scholarly journal article.
