For this assignment, you need to read essays written by scholars that either support or oppose a position related to your topic. The SCF Library has a selection of appropriate articles, books, and other materials about this topic.
Use the "Quick Search" or the search box below to search for all kinds of sources.
In order to support your argument in favor or against the main point in the topic you chose, you need to find an essay in one of the books set aside in the Library's RESERVE collection.
Go to the Bradenton Library (Bldg.3) to see the books on RESERVE for Prof. Anson.
In addition, most of these books can be found electronically in the following databases (check with the assignment's instructions regarding use of electronic sources):
When you use information for this assignment, you should introduce a quote from the book with a signal phrase. Prof. Anson's assignment has instructions on how to do this.
Make sure to state the author's name, title of work, etc. and follow the MLA format for in-text citations with signal phrase.
In addition, you have to create a full citation in MLA format and add it as Work Cited at the end of the paper. Ask the librarians to help you with citing the books on RESERVE or the electronic sources.
For example, in an essay about assisted suicide, you could write something like this:
As Kimberly Leonard noted in the article "Assisted Suicide Laws Threaten Patients Rights" found in the Opposing Viewpoints database, "many who oppose assisted suicide laws worry that they will snowball into targeting vulnerable people, including those with disabilities" (Leonard).
