Library Research Tips and Techniques - Article Review Assignment

Your assignment requires that you locate a fairly specific source.  Essentially, you must locate an article that:

1. Is from a scholarly, peer-reviewed sociology or anthropology journal.

2. Relates to your class topics:  marriage, family, gender roles, mate selection, etc.

3. Focuses on a non-western culture.

4. Has been published between 1990 and the present.

5. Is a research article - meaning the author(s) are presenting the results of an original research project.  

Please contact John Thomas if you would like extra help with this assignment.


Research Assistance

I check my email and phone messages several times a day during my normal work hours (9:00 am - 5:00 pm EST Monday through Friday).  I also monitor discussion boards in online classes that I participate in, with the goal checking them at least once each work day. 

If you need immediate help after my work day ends, during the weekends, when I am on vacation, or if I am not available when you call, contact the librarian at the Reference Desk, send our reference staff an email, or chat with a librarian online (likely not a JCC librarian, but helpful nonetheless) as outlined on our "Ask a Librarian" web page.

I look forward to working with you.
