CO122: Analytic and Persuasive Writing: Home

This guide lists resources for your assignments in CO122.

Welcome to your CO122 Library Guide.

Why should you use the library when so much information is online?  We live in a post-truth world where anyone can share whatever they think is true, regardless of science and the reality of the issue.  The library provides quality resources that are already vetted for you.  Effective research skills requires the ability to determine what type of information you and knowledge of where to find it.  Searching is a strategic and iterative process.

  • Find an article related to your topic using OneSearch or one of the reference databases listed under Background Info
