Step B: Open up Microsoft Word and practice citing these sources using the Zotero Word-Plugin

Activity 2: Leveraging a Source to Find Additional Sources

One great way to find additional sources is to branch out from a source you already have.

Using one of the sources from Activity 1, explore the following questions:

  1. What database is this source found in? Why might this database help find similar sources? (You can find links to these databases on the "Finding Additional Sources Page" of this guide)
  2. How does the database describe the source? How might this be relevant to finding more sources?
  3. Who wrote this source? How might you look up more by this author?
  4. What other literature is cited by this source? How might you look up and find these sources?
