Strategic Searching

Examine the following article:

Beren, F. (2014). Civil disobedience. In C.J. Forsyth & H. Copes (Eds.), Encyclopedia of social deviance (Vol. 1, pp. 102-104). Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage.

Then, answer the following questions:

  • From which library database did the source come? What type of information does this source provide?
  • Locate three more resources related to this subject. What were the most successful search strategies on your topic (e.g. keyword vs. subject searching, Boolean operators, etc.).
  • Be sure to discuss the different perspectives represented and whether there are people/voices that might be missing in the discussion of the source. Compare and contrast the type of information found in each source, as well as articulate the processes underlying the creation of each source.
  • Have the authors of these sources come to different conclusions? What does that have to do with their disciplinary conventions, authority, or bias?

Your written submission should be 1-2 pages in length with document and citation formatting per the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA.
